You will benefit from a supportive team of academic supervisors, business contacts and university colleagues. We all want your project to be a success and will work together to support you from start to finish. Together, we can make a real difference to the world of business and overcome environmental challenges we face across the world today.

What we do

We are led by business research needs and all of our projects have come from a UK North West business. These are then linked with academic expertise at the universities of Lancaster and Liverpool before openly recruiting for a Graduate Researcher to deliver the research project – this could be you!

We are open to all business ideas, as long as they are innovative, exciting and lead to a carbon saving and environmental benefit.

Don’t take our word for it, here are some testimonials from our previous cohort.
