Minister for Small Business Paul Scully MP has met entrepreneurs taking part in Kingston University's Help to Grow management programme as part of a fact-finding visit to learn more about how firms are overcoming challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
A team of academics from Kingston University including Dr Rosa Busquets, Dr Olga Duran and Dr Gordon Hunter, are working with Mark Gale, of not-for-profit company BeesMax and Surrey Honey Farm, on the development of new devices for monitoring pollutants within honeybee hives through funding from the BIG South London Voucher Scheme. At the start of this year's EU Pollinator Week, they outline why the decline in honeybee populations is a global problem and how the development of these technologies could help better understand the impact pollution is having could help address it.
Organisations from across the region are harnessing Kingston University's academic expertise, student talent and specialist facilities to help deliver a series of innovative projects in business, mental health, farming, cyber security, climate action and more. Businesses were able to apply for a £5,000 Open Innovation Voucher to work with the University on the delivery of a defined project through the BIG (Business, Innovation and Growth) in South London programme.
