Accelerating Thermal Energy Adoption (ATETA)
The programme has now secured fresh funding from the ERDF to extend support across a further four Local Enterprise Partnerships: the Black Country; Coventry and Warwickshire; Worcestershire and the Marches.
Through ATETA support, businesses have the opportunity to collaborate with an experienced team of Knowledge Exchange Fellows to improve their research and development and identify new market opportunities.
In particular, Knowledge Exchange Fellows work with SMEs to:
· Develop and commercialise energy products or services
· Provide a platform to test and demonstrate innovative ideas in the University’s state-of-the-art laboratories
· Open doors to new energy markets and technologies
· Solve business problems
· Provide access to energy market intelligence
· Unlock new opportunities
To date the programme has succeeded in generating a net income of almost £25 million for the local economy.
