DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire will host the first joint seminar and information session for the Green Launching Pad Friday, Feb. 12, 2010. The seminar and session will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building, Theatre I.

The Green Launching Pad is a collaboration between UNH and the State of New Hampshire to bring new green technologies to the marketplace, help innovative clean technology companies succeed, and support the creation of “green” economy jobs in New Hampshire.

Through the Green Launching Pad, companies, both established and start-ups, will receive extensive financial, operational, technical, and managerial support to launch and commercialize green energy products and services. This will include products and services to enhance energy efficiency and renewable energy. By accelerating these products and services to market, the program will help reduce energy use and carbon emissions while creating new jobs and economic opportunities in New Hampshire.
