LANCASTER University is launching a £7.1m low-carbon research and development programme to support small and medium sized enterprises in Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire and Liverpool.
The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation, at Lancaster University, has more than 50 long-term projects involving three-year PhD, or one-year Masters degree, high-calibre graduate researchers working full-time on projects bespoke to the needs of their host business. Individual projects can be worth up to £100,000 in value.
In addition, more than 80 short-term student dissertation or placement projects are also available with researchers working on a project for up to six months.
The projects on offer are part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and therefore offer significant value to participating companies.
