A medical equipment manufacturer and a plant-based drinks producer are among the businesses being supported by an innovative project at the University of Plymouth.
The Devon Net Zero Innovation Fund has provided funding for companies looking to develop products or services for the low carbon sector.
Its aim was to enable eligible Devon enterprises to collaborate with University academics in order to develop new, commercially viable initiatives or to diversify.
As well as helping enterprises to take action on climate change, it also helps smaller enterprises to compete with larger ones that have the resources to undertake their own research.
The Devon Net Zero Innovation Fund is being supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), delivered through the University’s Low Carbon Devon project.
