It is always worthwhile taking the time to participate in events which are taking place in your area, and it was with this in mind that we attended the inaugural launch of the Green Growth Platform in May this year.

The Green Growth Platform will act as a catalyst for growth and innovation, and will provide a range of services to small and medium-sized enterprises and is a five year programme with £3 million of funding from the Higher Education Funding Council.

The University of Brighton has for many years worked in partnership with businesses to combine academic expertise and research with business applications and we have had continued links with the University over many years, originally working to supply an environmental auditing course back in the 1990’s and providing an external examiner for the MSc in environmental science, to more recent training work.

We very much support the work being done by Green Growth Platform  being both members as well as advisers to this innovative initiative.
