A KTA funded Proof of Concept to develop an EPSRC funded project called 'Lowcarbonworks', which aids organisations to reduce the carbon they use, helping to reach the Government's target of 80% reduction in carbon by 2050.  Prof Peter Reason and his team will work with a Knowledge Transfer Mentor to explore the financial sustainability of taking their research into business, working with policymakers, the public and private sectors through workshops.
