The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation was established in 2012 based on the University’s pioneering decision to place its world-class environmental research at the heart of driving innovation for Clean and Sustainable Growth. Our previous projects have supported more than 700 SMEs since 2012 and two of its graduates won the prestigious James Dyson Award in 2018.
Through our flagship project Eco-I North West we are recruiting researchers onto a number of funded Master's by research (MRes) projects. These will be recruiting from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. Graduates join a substantial cohort of like-minded and ambitious researchers, providing an important peer network and support group. You’ll be mentored by our Innovation Fellows and benefit from both academic and business supervision and support.
“Being a part of this research group gives you a unique perspective into how businesses and centres for academic research can work together to generate real world impact. You feel part of something bigger, because you are!”
Phoebe Sutton, Graduate Researcher, May Barn Consultancy Ltd
“Being a researcher within the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation has given me an amazing opportunity to be involved in the development of technology that will hopefully have a real, tangible and positive impact on reducing energy consumption.”
Cathy New, Graduate Researcher, Hardy and Ellis Inventions Ltd
“It has opened so many doors for me as a researcher. My company has taken me to Germany, France and London, so I’ve had the chance to travel. It’s really opened my eyes to the possibility that the skills I have learnt could allow me to work abroad.”
Rebecca Burns, Graduate Researcher, Isoprime
“The idea of curiosity-driven science never appealed to me, as the possibility that all of my hard work may never benefit anyone was too daunting. However, my project had very specific research objectives and I was safe in the knowledge that my research was likely to benefit my business partner.”
Jonathan Longden, Graduate Researcher, Nucleotide Nutrition Ltd
