- About Us
The event will look at why sustainability is an increasingly important business issue – regardless of size of business. It will look at enterprises that are adopting circular economy principles to build long-term resilience, generate business and economic opportunities and achieve environmental and societal benefits.
The George Davies Centre for Medicine is the largest Passivhaus building in the UK. It has been built to an internationally recognised energy and sustainability performance standard. This dramatically reduces the requirement for heating and cooling, whilst creating excellent indoor air quality and comfort levels.
The iNet will outline the support and funding for SME Innovation and Growth from The iNet, and programmes SMEs can take advantage of. It will also provide examples of successful bids for funding.
You will have an opportunity to network with other attendees and meet the speakers before and after the event.
We will meet for light refreshments and talks at the brand new Leicester Innovation Hub (on the Corner of University Road and Regent Road in Leicester – near the De Montfort Hall), followed by a tour of the George Davies PassivHaus, which is a short walk from the Innovation Hub.
Note there is limited free parking at the Innovation Hub. There is paid parking at Victoria Park – a five minute walk away.
