The Innovation Catalyst: Pioneering a low carbon food and drink sector in Liverpool

Why my business?

This programme is designed for influential and ambitious SME leaders, in the food and drink sector, interested in connecting with
academic expertise and like-minded peers to address the opportunities and challenges posed by the Net Zero Carbon agenda.

Who you will work with

To stimulate innovation, participants will be grouped based on a shared challenge which they will address with a solutiondriven, collaborative approach. As a result, programme content is emergent and ultimately shaped by you and the other business leaders in your group.

What is involved?

Over a six-month period we will facilitate a series of investigative and action-focused ‘Innovation Collaboratories’ to collectively
map out your goals, challenges, and innovation needs.

When does it start?

The programme begins with a two-day overnight stay activation event designed to stimulate ideas for tackling challenges in
the sector. Liverpool cohort commences 11th and 12th of May 2022.
