A new regional hub funded by Climate-KIC – Europe’s largest public-private partnership focused on tackling climate change – is being launched at the Innovation Birmingham Campus. The West Midlands Regional Innovation Centre will receive in excess of €1million of funding per annum, spread across a number of local initiatives.
Innovation Birmingham is creating five new jobs to run the Centre. Katharine Fuller has been recruited as Senior Project Manager for EU Projects to lead the new team, joining from her previous role as Birmingham City University’s EU Funding Manager.
The Centre’s main initiatives are; Pioneers into Practice – a grant-funded European exchange programme for low carbon specialists; the Low Carbon Accelerator Programme for start-up businesses; and a range of grant-funded education programmes aimed at students, professionals and organisations.
