Expert advice on offer for micro SMEs in the sustainability sector

Micro SMEs working in the sustainability sector have a rare chance to access expert advice on getting their innovative ideas to mainstream markets this June.

The support and advice is available via Innovate UK’s Resource Efficiency Steering Group. The group, which made up of senior people from industry and government organisations, only meets twice a year and its next session is in June 2015 – and there are still places available for micro SMEs who’d like a sounding board for their bright ideas.

Daniel Cremin from Birmingham Science Park-based Civico attended the last session in December, and found the support and advice he got invaluable.

"The feedback from the industry experts gave us an invaluable level of scrutiny and orientation that helped us to refine our final project design and its value.

"Following the meeting we decided to apply to the Innovate UK ‘Recovering valuable materials from waste’ competition.

"Meeting with the Resource Sustainability Steering Group really helped Civico and I’d recommend others do the same," he added

Any UK micro SME can apply, whether or not they have applied for Innovate UK funding before.
