Chris joined the team in 2003 and since then has been involved in the delivery and management of LPDU’s regional economic growth initiatives to support SMEs across the Northwest region. Programmes include those that provide expertise in technology transfer, carbon footprinting, eco-design, additive manufacturing and supporting companies exploiting business benefits from the climate change agenda. Chris has been working intimately with European funding since he joined the University and has spent time seconded to Research and Enterprise Services in a special projects role. Chris holds a BSc (Hons), an MSc and is an Associate Member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment.
