In 2021, The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) at Harwell Campus, and Oxfordshire Greentech, the business network for the low carbon economy in Oxfordshire, ran a series of three virtual events that were very successful in bringing together funders and organisations seeking funding.

Following 2021, and the previous three years of this highly successful conference, this year we are again taking it on-line in the form of three events over three weeks in early 2022.

For 2022, STFC, Oxfordshire Greentech, and sister network Cambridge Cleantech, have again brought together experts and investors who specialise in helping tech businesses flourish.

The Conference comprises three on-line events:

Session 1 – Coaching masterclass for early-stage funding, 27th January – this event
Session 2 – Clean tech/energy, 17th February
Session 3 – Space tech, 3rd March
Cambridge Cleantech and Oxfordshire Greentech are also running another event on 3rd February – “After TRL 3: funding and scale up opportunities for your cleantech business”. Sign up for that here.

The first event in the three-part series is a ‘coaching masterclass’ focused on those seeking early stage and start-up funding. Delivered by a series of experts with vast experience in helping businesses to obtain funding and grow. Speakers will provide grant funding advice, legal and tax insights as well as innovation specialists.

The following two events focus on specific business sectors, with the 2nd session focusing on the clean/green tech sector and the 3rd and final session focusing on space tech.

Attendees will hear what funding available and crucially what investors are looking for. You will have the opportunity to speak with the investors and experts who can help your business grow. The events will combine insightful presentations with dynamic online networking when you can connect with other businesses and the speakers.
