Research funding win for business school
The University of Exeter's Business School has won a bid for 300,000 euros in European research funds, to work on 'sustainability-driven' innovation.
The facility will use the funding to undertake research and training focused on creating business innovations inspired by nature, a discipline known as biomimicry.
Exeter has secured the funding as part of a consortium of eight international universities, coordinated by the European Academy of Business in Society, which has secured just under three million euros in total.
The funding has been granted from the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission and the research will help support the European Union's 2020 Vision Statement of developing a 'smart, sustainable and inclusive economy.'
