Environmental technologies & clean tech
We have a long association with complex multiple-partner and consortia R&D programmes. We work with a wide variety of commercial and public sector partners across the EU to create, deliver and evaluate significant research in science and technology.
Inventya's expertise lies in:
- Writing consortia proposals, schedule work packages and cost-out partner contributions
- Acting as project participants delivering market insight, dissemination and commercialisation through work packages
- Leading project consortia with partnering searches, contract negotiation, project management and reporting
- Providing expert advice on Horizon 2020 and European Research Council R&D applications
We don't believe in doing something for the sake of it. If we lead or join a large R&D consortia project, it's because we believe there are real and quantifiable benefits to be gained from the fundamental research and its application to the real world.
And we carefully select partners with whom we work on the basis of both their technical or academic expertise as well as their commitment to the project goals.
We take seriously our commitment to the project, our partners and the project sponsors. We have a great deal of expertise in consortia project management and reporting, including auditing and impact assessment. Projects led by Inventya have never suffered from overspend, delays or project creep.
We are particularly interested in joining or leading R&D consortia projects in healthcare and in environmental technologies or clean tech.
We are participating in four major collaborative projects; three in healthcare technology and one project focused upon supporting SMEs with innovative product ideas for environmental technologies and process improvement. View our detailed project descriptions below.
if you are looking for a project partner or if you are considering applying for Horizon 2020 calls during 2014, we'd love to hear from you.
Current projects in healthcare and environmental technologies
Funded by the Technology Strategy Board's Assisted Living Innovation Platform (ALIP) and by ESRC, Aktive investigates the role of technology in promoting well-being and independence in later life by exploring how older people experience, value, respond to, and engage with telecare.
Aktive is led by the University of Leeds Centre for International Research on Care, Labour & Inequality (CIRCLE) and partners include Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, Tunstall and Inventya.
Key drivers of change include the increasing agenda of personalisation in UK adult social care; the continued growth of the older demographic (by 2034 those aged 85+ will account for more than 5% of the total UK population); design & usability considerations including multiple risk assessment; and financial pressures upon local authorities and community care within the NHS.
Aktive will complete and present its findings in a 'roadshow' event held at Sci-Tech Daresbury in December 2013 and at the final conference held at the University of Leeds in April 2014.

The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation is a collaboration between Lancaster University, the University of Liverpool and Inventya.
The virtual centre offers commercialisation and R&D support to businesses in the northwest of England with eco-innovative products, services or processes.
Business support and R&D collaboration available through the Centre is targeted for eco-innovation - new and existing products and services which will, by nature of their design, manufacture, raw materials or use, ultimately contribute towards the reduction of greenhouse gases or the more efficient use of natural resources. The centre's priogramme is particularly relevant to firms in pharmaceutical, bioscience, agriculture, environmental engineering and transport sectors.
Since it launched in 2012 the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation has raised £3 million in funding for participating companies and by 2015 plans to help nearly 300 businesses.
The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation project is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013.
