The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) is undertaking a feasibility into one or more ‘Talent Institutes’ across the West of England region.
A Talent Institute is a space or facility where business and educational providers come together to provide skills for residents together with research and innovation support for businesses. The Talent Institute could be a new build facility, a refurbishment or add value to an existing enterprise or initiative.
WECA is seeking Outline Proposals for possible Talent Institutes, to provide information which can be explored further with WECA and Local Authority partners with a view to significant WECA investment. The expectation is that by Summer 2019 we will have completed a Business Case to identify the priority Talent Institutes and how they may be funded.
Please complete the Outline Proposal (see below) by Monday 21 January 2019. To assist with this, the questions (and word limits) can also be viewed here. However, please remember to submit your Outline Proposal through the online form.
Please read our guidance before completing your Outline Proposal.
