The Aura Innovation Centre, led by the University of Hull, is inviting Humber SMEs and organisations to take part in a short survey that will look at the economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and how this can be delivered whilst achieving the Government’s ambition for the UK to be net zero on carbon emissions by 2050.
