GLIDE Sustainability & Circular Economy Programme

GLIDE is a new initiative which aims to generate increased levels of entrepreneurship by consolidating the existing knowledge and expertise and streamlining it to better cater to the needs of individuals wishing to start their own business. By doing so, GLIDE seeks to encourage innovation in the wake of COVID-19 and ultimately invigorate economic development and productivity growth. GLIDE is part funded by Buckinghamshire New University and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Programme which is designed to create jobs and support innovation, businesses, and local community regeneration.
