Cleantech Innovate Scotland Needs You!

Posted: 21st January 2015

This future may not be far away thanks to innovative technology concepts featured at Cleantech Innovate – a celebration of the very best of commercial green industry innovation in the largest showcase of its kind in the UK.

The first Cleantech Innovate Scotland 2015 takes place in Glasgow on 4 June, following the 3rd London showcase on 12th February. We are really excited to be able to bring this showcase to Scotland: Scottish companies have been very successful at previous London events but we wanted to make it easier for SMEs here, who are often cash-poor, to get recognition.

Now we need you to get involved!

Our first big call is for technologies – companies from anywhere across low carbon (from energy generation to storage methods, from software to lighting, from green construction to wave & tidal) can apply free or you can nominate them but we need these in by the deadline of 23rd February.

One company will win €20,000 in cash on the day which can make a big difference to an innovator.

We have selected the first 3 of our 25 finalists – they also won a place in London – we are getting some great applications in but we want more to keep our selection committee busy!

Oh and you can also join us as a delegate – great keynote speakers have signed up – or as a sponsor or even take a trip to the London event.

Scotland is a buzzing, innovative country –  Cleantech Innovate is a buzzing, innovative event, it’s the perfect match
