Clean Growth UK (three regional hubs, the University of Brighton, Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Portsmouth)
Established in 2018, Clean Growth UK is a national, university-led business network comprised of three hubs, the University of Brighton (lead partner), Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Portsmouth. It was designed to catalyse clean innovation and deliver research with impact. We have created a thriving clean growth business-innovation network of 2000+ members, which adds significant value to member businesses, organisations, and universities. We support organisations aiming to create and mainstream the products, services and business models required for rapid transition to a net zero, sustainable economy.
We have demonstrated the strong potential for research with impact to drive clean growth and the role of SMEs as innovation drivers. Clean Growth UK pools the Knowledge Exchange (KE) expertise and capabilities of its three regional cleantech networks. Through our three university hubs, we provide, and broker support focused on developing innovations and R&D projects, commercialising ideas, and securing funding for businesses and researchers on a mission to protect the planet for future generations.
