New Cleantech Collaborative Growth Network (CGN) launched for Mid and East Antrim

A new industry led network has been established under the auspices of the Mid and East Antrim Manufacturing Task Force (MTF) and has secured set-up phase funding from Invest NI.

The new ‘cleantech’ CGN grouping has a focus on meeting the challenges that companies will face in the transition to net carbon zero i.e. the phasing out of fossil fuels and likewise has a primary focus on exploring and exploiting the significant opportunities that will arise from this transition.  For example, the creation of new ‘greener’ products and technologies and seizing market opportunities from increasing customer demand for goods and services that are produced and delivered in an environmentally responsible way.
