The global market for eco-industries has been estimated at roughly €1.15 trillion. With new environmental regulations, increasing prices for traditional energy resources and changing market demands, this figure is set to double with the average estimate for 2020 being around €2 trillion a year.

In this context, the ENVISION consortium has contracted Arctik to organise a workshop and networking lunch on 9 July 2015 to help businesses to find out how research partnerships can help them better exploit this market.

ENVISION brings together six of the UK’s top institutions for environmental research under one single consortium. Collectively, these institutions represent 500+ research staff and over £60 million of infrastructure investment in the last 10 years. It connects world leading UK researchers working on environmental challenges with industry and NGOs to ensure that the next generation of environmental scientists can meet the changing needs of business in the move towards a low carbon, sustainable and profitable economy.

Over 2,500 businesses have developed R&D solutions to support sustainable economic growth with the help of the ENVISION consortium. Through a series of case study presentations, a panel debate and roundtable discussions, this upcoming workshop, which is aimed at practitioners in the environment, energy, food, water and waste sectors, will show how:

  • Businesses can access cutting-edge R&D innovation, expertise, skills and finance

  • Eco-innovation benefits business

  • Collaborating with universities and research institutions can open new markets and increase performance
  • In addition to organising and facilitating the event, Arctik provides targeted public relations support, the branding strategy, the design and the production of materials.
