Cranfield University has launched the Green Technologies (GreenTech) Grand Challenge Day to help accelerate the development and implementation of environmentally-sustainable technologies that can increase businesses competitiveness, stimulate innovation, boost economic growth, and create jobs to a wide range of strategically important UK industries.
To achieve the Government’s Net Zero 2050 targets and many of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals, rapid transitions based on a fine-grained understanding of the consequences of introducing alternative methods and environmentally-friendly technologies are needed.
Join our experts at the online exhibition day. This virtual event aims to act as the formal introduction of the GreenTech Grand Challenge, providing an opportunity for engagement with local and regional policymakers and industry stakeholders, as well as disseminating Cranfield’s unique world-leading expertise, facilities and technology through presentations, videos, interviews and round table discussions.
