Clean Growth and Infrastructure Innovation Event – Newcastle

Tuesday, 17 September 2019 from 09:30 to 15:20 (BST)

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting the fourth Clean Growth and Infrastructure Innovation event.

The purpose of the day is to foster innovation and enhance collaboration across the UK in this key area. This event aims to enhance interactions and build a stronger network amongst the significant wealth of expertise the UK has in Clean Growth from companies, key stakeholders and academia.

We will be promoting funding opportunities available for innovators working across the supply chain in Clean Growth, and providing insights from a panel comprised of people with considerable sector and regional expertise.

Delegates can expect:

  • to gain insight of local and large industry needs and drivers
  • obtain pointers and tips from successful grant winners
  • receive valuable insights on topics and future funding opportunities
  • to better understand the support available locally and nationally to develop applications
  • the opportunity to participate in brokerage sessions throughout the day, and form new relationships
