Cleantech Cluster Breakfast and Innovation Hub meeting
London is already the leading centre for low carbon finance and has built a worldwide reputation for financial and technical expertise. We are now working to ensure London is a world leader in new technology and climate change. As part of this the London Sustainable Development Commission are developing a Cleantech Cluster for London.
This breakfast briefing will bring together local authorities, business, entrepreneurs and financiers to highlight the key components of a Cleantech Cluster and the associated financial benefits for both the public and private sectors.
In addition, attendees are invited to join the Haringey Built Environment Innovation Hub meeting to see how they promote and drive strategic collaboration between major property customers, new technologies and market shapers.
The Innovation Hub, established by Haringey Council provides a platform to source, screen, bring forward and accelerate the adoption of technologies and solutions in line with user needs. It supports sustainability and the low carbon agenda, drives economic growth and enhances well-being in the urban environment.
The Innovation Hub meeting will follow the business breakfast, running from 10am to 4pm.
Registration for this event has now closed.
