We are committed to encouraging businesses, organisations, and communities to come together to tackle society's biggest challenges through innovation. Innovation is a key pillar of our region's Local Industrial Strategy and is central to long-term recovery for the West of England, following the impact of COVID-19.
We are developing a West of England Plan for Innovation led by the Authority. The plan sets out our innovation priorities and how we hope to achieve them in close collaboration with our partners (including local authorities, universities and industry).
It will also showcase our region’s innovation strengths and technologies that will help us and the United Kingdom to remain at the forefront of the global knowledge economy. To deepen collaborative work on the plan further, we are holding five workshops in September.
If you have a professional interest to contribute to any of the workshop themes, you can join up to two workshops here – places are limited.
We’re supporting businesses to innovate, adapt and improve sustainability.
Our region’s digital transformation will help us improve inclusivity and tackle climate change.
