GRANTS are available to help create jobs and businesses in the green economy.

Local authorities are supporting a scheme that provides grants of up to £100,000 through the Future Solent Partnership for green economy businesses to take forward research and development projects and create jobs.

The scheme is also helping businesses to access research and development facilities and networks in the area’s universities.

Future Solent is a joint initiative of the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire and the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, working with Solent Local Enterprise Partnership to support growth in the low carbon and green economy in the area.
