Enterprise hub will help SMEs bring sustainable inventions to market and advise on use of green techniques

The BRE has launched a new service to help eco-inventors in the East of England.

The BRE enterprise hub will offer advice to innovative SMEs on bringing sustainable technologies to market.

Funded by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA), the service will also offer guidance to companies wanting to find and apply sustainable build methods, materials and technologies.

Deborah Cadman, chief executive of EEDA, said: “Businesses who innovate will be in a strong position to capitalise when market conditions improve.

“The BRE enterprise hub is a vital component of EEDA's business support offering, operating in a particularly vulnerable sector to weather the storms and prepare for that upturn.”
