About this event

This event was designed for businesses and organisations to come along and find out more about the programmes and initiatives that the North East LEP delivers and how they can get involved.

We worked with businesses to write the North East Strategic Economic Plan, we have now developed a range of programmes and initiatives that they can get involved with to help us boost economic wealth in the North East.

Some of the areas discussed included Funding, Innovation, the North East Growth Hub and Skills.
