Peel Ports signs academic tie-up

[ April 4, 2022   //   ]

Peel Ports Group has entered into a partnership with the University of Liverpool’s Management School to enhance its new Innovation Forum.

The Forum aims to answer some of the port operator’s most challenging questions in reducing carbon emissions as part of its commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2040.

The Management School will become a key partner in Peel Ports’ Innovation Forum, which also looks to bring together a broad range of suppliers including starts-ups, entrepreneurs and consultants to explore the biggest issues in accessing and purchasing carbon-neutral solutions for the group’s seven sites across the UK and Ireland.

The Peel Ports’ team will raise questions and challenges with members of the Forum and ask them to source solutions or develop ideas to address these.

The collaboration will also include sharing insights and input to strengthen the University curricula in professional areas, as well as opportunities for graduate and student placements and apprenticeships.
