Purpose of the presentations

The first ILCWG meeting of 2017, that we coordinate on behalf of Birmingham Science City (BSC), took place on 1 March.  This was the first meeting to be chaired by Mike Woollacott of Greenwatt Technology, a SWM member. The meeting was hosted at Stoneleigh Park, the site of the National Low Carbon Centre (NLCC) and a tour of the site commenced initially courtesy of Colin from the landlords LaSalles.  The main meeting commenced with a more detailed overview of the Stoneleigh Park site and the NLCC.  This was followed by an update from Joanna Fletcher regarding Aston University and partner’s Innovation Vouchers initiative for SMEs, and then Gareth Deakin from the Advanced Propulsion Centre provided us with an overview of the various projects being run by the organisation.  Updates were also provided on the Combined Authority Science and Innovation Audit and European Structural Development funding.  See the notes and slides below for full details and links.
