Accelerating to a better future

A new podcast series celebrating the work of the Grantham Institute’s Climate-KIC Accelerator Programme at Imperial College London. Listen to stories from successful entrepreneurs who have transformed bright ideas into useable products, creating prosperity and helping tackle climate change.

Where it all began!

Over a decade ago a team of visionaries at Imperial College London teamed up with European colleagues to found the European Institute of Innovation and Technology’s Climate Knowledge Innovation Centre. They shared a vision to bring the science and technology expertise of their organisations to the creation of new cleantech businesses. Out of this the Accelerator Programme was born and can now boast a string of successful businesses producing everything from seaweed packaging to robots that install underfloor insulation, and agriculture that uses very little water for cattle feed and cotton. In this first episode founders Professor Richard Templer and Sir Brian Hoskins remember how and where it all began.
