Purpose of the presentations

The third ILCWG meeting of 2017, that we coordinate on behalf of Birmingham Science City (BSC), took place on 21 September.  The meeting commenced with a welcome and introduction to hosts Energy Systems Catapult, who gave a summary of their current projects and work; we were very grateful for use of their excellent facilities!  Rob then gave a fascinating insight into the BIFOR FACE project – climate change innovation at its very best. There followed a run through of current European Funding opportunities, in particular the Sustainable Urban Development Fund for GBSLEP.  Pam then convened a discussion around the future of low carbon innovation in the region and then followed a roundtable update from partners. See the notes and slides below for full details and links.
