Creative industries funding opportunity – Low Carbon Innovation Fund gets creative!
The Low Carbon Innovation Fund (LCIF), operated by the Adapt Low Carbon Group at the University of East Anglia will be celebrating an unmissable opportunity for the creative industries at an event on 18 June in Colchester.
A recent expansion of the Fund means that over £30m of venture capital funding (from public, European Regional Development Fund, and private sources) will be invested into a range of businesses in the East of England working to reduce carbon emissions and grow their businesses.
The event will be a great opportunity for creative businesses and those who work with them to find out more about the Fund, meet the Fund Managers, lawyers and accountants and to network with key people from the sector. There will be a number of presentations and seminar sessions during the afternoon followed by networking and drinks.
Where and when?
Monday 18 June 1pm – 5.30pm (with drinks reception and networking from 5.30 – 6.30pm)
