The Humber Industrial Cluster Plan (HICP) is currently in development. The HICP Team want to hear opinions from local people in the Humber Region and are looking for a range of people to volunteer as participants in focus groups, to discuss the social and cultural dimensions of the industrial low carbon energy transition in the Humber.

If you would be interested in participating, please fill out this form and you forwarded an invitation, subject to availability. Some more information about what the HICP Project is doing and how it relates to these focus groups is included in the rest of this email. Please note, all focus groups will be virtual and will last two hours. You will be offered a modest recognition to those that attend the focus groups in the form of a £10 voucher. 

The HICP is currently in Phase 1 of its development, which is considering various different factors before the launch of the Plan next year. The focus groups are related to Lot 4 of this work; which is exploring the social and cultural aspects of industrial decarbonisation in the Humber. This means thinking about what the impacts of decreasing the carbon emissions of heavy industry will be on Humber society as a whole, and what the impacts will be in different groups on the Humber. So far they have spoken to different stakeholders in business, government, and the third sector, and now they want to hear directly from individuals.
