Part of the Lancashire Innovation Festival October 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global crisis, affecting individuals, governments and businesses across the world. The greatest challenge of our time also presents the greatest opportunity in generations. A chance to challenge the status quo and ‘business as usual’ mantra that has dominated our economy since the industrial revolution.
At this event we will discuss the importance of innovation in economic recovery, in order to deliver business growth, resilience and a truly green economy. You will hear from a successful innovative business reflecting on previous experience of collaborating with Lancaster University. You will also learn about a new £14m North West innovation fund which supports the development of low carbon technologies.
We have heard calls for economic recovery plans to embed environmental shifts and carbon reductions. The UK government has pledged to ‘level up’ the country as part of Covid-19 recovery but it remains to be seen whether these plans will deliver steps towards a lower carbon economy in line with UK Clean Growth Strategy.
Whilst we plan ahead into a post Covid-19 world, business leaders need to address another and equally pressing global crisis – climate change. We believe what is better for business should also be better for the environment. Join us to discuss how Lancashire and the UK North West is best placed to facilitate a shift to a lower carbon economy and how you can gain funded support to support your innovations.
This brand-new festival will showcase some of Lancashire’s latest innovations in a series of web-events hosted by industry experts from across the county throughout October, covering a wide range of themes. Attendees will also be able to make the most of networking opportunities with video conferencing and an online chat functionality.
