Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course

Description

This workshop, hosted by Rural Enterprise UK (REUK), explored progress in delivering the UK Industrial Strategy for rural economies. It facilitated a 3-way discussion between those who defined and oversee delivery of the UK Industrial Strategy (BEIS, MHCLG and Defra), those tasked with its delivery (eg LEPs and Sector Councils), and business or community stakeholders keen to benefit from its successful implementation in the UK’s rural areas. A particular focus of the day was to explore how the Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges (An Ageing Society, Clean Growth, Future Mobility, and AI & Big Data) and wider measures to boost SME Productivity in rural areas are, or could be, embedded and addressed through Local Industrial (or Economic) Strategies, and Sector Deals.
