Edinburgh’s Heriot Watt University is working in partnership with CleanWebFACTORY to offer bursaries for people to attend the Energy Finance for Growth seminar in London on 6 January 2015.

Energy Finance for Growth is attended by early-stage entrepreneurs, innovators and academic staff and students working on applied research and commercial spin-outs and start-ups from universities.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Baroness Bryony Worthington, Shadow Energy Minister in the House of Lords.

Bursary applications are invited from UK based entrepreneurs, innovators and academic staff/students who would not usually be able afford the workshop fee and travel.  

Lisa Farrell, Business Development Executive, at Heriot-Watt University, explained: “The scheme is open to anyone – but we particularly encourage women to apply in order to address the gender gap experienced at previous workshops.”

 Applications close on Wednesday 19 November 2014.

The full workshop fee plus follow up mentoring is provided by the bursary, in addition to an allowance of £300 for travel, accommodation or child / dependent care as the bursary recipient chooses. The bursaries also include a period of post-workshop mentoring.
