We spent a very productive and informative day at the University of Surrey RECLAIM conference earlier this month where we took the opportunity to network and showcase our game changing Living Pillar™.
We met many of the academics whose knowledge helps us validate our innovative products and services as we ‘Breathe Life Into Cities’.
Surrey University and RECLAIM bring a network of academics together to investigate and substantiate how Nature can help to ‘RECLAIM’ and strengthen our cities against climate change.
It is a powerful combination as we make headway in this incredibly exciting market – Bringing Biodiversity into our Cities.
Given that our industry includes many that shunned academia, it was lovely to see both parties respect and share skillset and knowledge in equal measure.
There is a healthy list of positives to this type of collaboration;
Networking and Partnerships: The collaboration opens doors to networking opportunities within the academic community, environmental organizations, and local authorities. These connections can lead to new partnerships and business opportunities.
Enhanced Reputation: Partnering with a respected academic institution can significantly enhance your reputation. This association demonstrates a commitment to environmental sustainability and innovation, attracting environmentally conscious clients and investors.
Positive Impact: Ultimately, collaboration has the potential to make a positive impact on urban environments by increasing biodiversity, enhancing green spaces, and creating more sustainable and liveable cities.
As the demand to bring increasing amounts of biodiversity into our cities gathers apace, academic collaboration plays a pivotal role in sustainable urban development.
We benefit from access to research, technical expertise, validation resources, interdisciplinary collaboration, educational opportunities, networking, and an enhanced reputation, whilst academia gains a real-world partner to help implement and advance their research and sustainability goals.
It takes more than passion to be successful. That’s why we have been researching and developing since 2010. Research-Development
