Businesses across Devon have just a week left to apply for university support and funding to help them play their part in tackling the global climate emergency.
The Devon Net Zero Innovation Fund, run by the University of Plymouth, is offering funding of up to £7,500 to companies looking to develop new products or services for the low carbon sector in collaboration with University academics.
It aims to enable at least 10 eligible Devon enterprises to develop new, commercially viable initiatives or to diversity - and is also designed to encourage new industries to emerge.
Among the enquiries received so far are enterprises wanting to work with academics on behaviour change and app development, while others are looking for expertise in developing an alternative to concrete.
The deadline for applications is midday on Thursday 28 October, with successful applicants being notified in November and then having around six months to complete their project.
The Devon Net Zero Innovation Fund is being supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), delivered through the Low Carbon Devon project at the University of Plymouth.
