By joining the network businesses will benefit from a bespoke programme of workshops to support business challenges, peer-to-peer learning, networking, and one-to-one mentoring with leading academics providing cutting-edge insights on future industry developments. The workshop series will tackle topics such as digital transformation, business resilience, skills and talent development and bid writing. Businesses can also benefit from a bespoke business diagnostic and expert support in the design of a plan to achieve growth, boost resilience and optimise innovation.
Dr Akos Revesz and Professor Graeme Maidment, specialists in low carbon renewable and secondary energy utilisation for heating and cooling applications from London South Bank University, are leading the programme.
Dr Revesz said: “The objectives of the Low Carbon Innovation Network are twofold. We want to build a local ecosystem of practitioners and researchers from across the sustainability sector in South London to overcome common challenges and share opportunities and best practices. We also want to provide bespoke mentoring and a full training programme to upskill the workforce, improve business resilience, increase innovation and create growth. The Low Carbon Network is open to organisations developing solutions from electric vehicle charging, smart home devices, heating and cooling networks, and renewable energy – to green finance, design and architectural services and the circular economy.”
