ECCI seeks new website to match its vision

12 September 2017

ECCI is entering an exciting period of growth. Our vision for a thriving, zero carbon world is developing fast, so we need a fresh new website that connects us with our emerging audiences.

We're inviting agencies and developers with a track record in beautifully designed, responsive and user-friendly websites to submit proposals to design and build ours.

The deadline is 5pm on Friday 29 September 2017.

Why now?

Timing is of the essence because we have a lot to shout about:

• Europe-wide business innovation start-up and accelerator support packages
• Public policy and practice work to support the Scottish Government’s radical low carbon plans over the next 15 years
• The emergence of Edinburgh City Region as one of Europe’s leading data innovation hubs, with opportunities in ‘smart’ future infrastructure, buildings and mobility
• International hubs and activities - with ECCI’s Hong Kong Centre now fully operational and others to come in Shanghai, South Asia and Latin America
• Coming soon: new online learning programmes to help cities, states and corporates thrive whilst delivering the Paris Agreement goals.

ECCI resident ClimateXChange, Scotland’s centre of expertise on climate change, is also inviting quotations for resdeigning its website, with a deadline of noon on Tuesday 26 September 2017. Find out more on the ClimateXChange website or read the full specification.

Helen Dunk, ECCI Communications Manager, said: “ECCI is at the heart of a vibrant low carbon community in Scotland and beyond.

"Based in one of the world’s most climate-ambitious countries, with our award-winning hub in Edinburgh and a new centre in Hong Kong, we have a fantastic story to tell.

“It’s an exhilarating time for us and for low carbon innovation. Our website will be the key to engaging people in the next exciting stage of our development.

“If you’d like to be a part of it, get in touch today.”
