Businesses with ideas to help the growing renewable energy industry in East Anglia are being invited to a new roadshow offering grant funding and support.
Score can offer grant funding of up to £50,000, and business support, to small and medium sized businesses.
The What's The Score? Sessions, starting in Rouen House in Norwich on March 23, combine a presentation about the scheme, with the chance to chat to Score staff and businesses which have already benefited.
Further locations include King's Lynn Innovation Centre (March 30), Beacon Innovation Centre in Gorleston (April 27), and OrbisEnergy in Lowestoft (May 18). All sessions run from 9am to 11am.
The scheme is open to companies with fewer than 250 staff and assets of less than 50m euros whose ideas will give economic benefits to East of England.
Score project manager Rob Bush said: 'We have made £290,000 worth of grants over the past six months, and are now taking the scheme 'on the road' to spread the word about how we can help.
'Companies in the supply chain do not have to have fully-developed project plans. It is just a chance to come and talk about ideas, and their businesses.

'The recent SNS2017 conference heard about the potential for 20 years of sustained renewable energy development so it is a good chance for companies to get involved. They may have technology ideas, new products, process improvements or need a new bit of kit to move their plans forward,' said Mr Bush.
