Clean Growth UK is a national university-led business network that catalyses clean and green business innovation and growth.
Open to any business with a commitment to taking action on climate change or sustainability, members of the community get access to a programme of business innovation and growth support, workshops and webinars. Ambitious businesses with the potential to innovate and grow can qualify for our innovation, commercialisation and investor readiness programmes, getting access to a support package tailored to their needs.
Bespoke packages can include university-business R&D partnerships, access to a personal business coach, a peer-to-peer business support programme, business masterclasses, investor pitch preparation support and investor introductions. The network will also bring large businesses, SMEs and universities together to tackle industry-specific problems around the themes of energy, waste and water.
Clean Growth UK is led by the University of Brighton and delivered across the UK through its three regional hubs: the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform, the University of Portsmouth’s Greentech South and Liverpool John Moores University.
