  • Overview

The government has made 'levelling-up' opportunities and economic performance across the UK a flagship policy of its forward agenda. COVID-19 has eaten-into vast sums of government bandwidth and spending, but the political will still exists to implement the levelling-up agenda. Outcomes in the North West, North East, Yorkshire and The Humber will determine the success of this programme.

This CPD accredited face-to-face Summit is a comprehensive programme of presentations and panel discussions exploring the issues steering the government's levelling-up agenda, including: innovative R&D programmes forging the North's place in the global knowledge economy and building on its revolutionary industrial heritage, global best-practices that will exhibit the potential of technological disruption, cross-sector partnerships and how these can be better leveraged at the regional level; upgrading transport connectivity to allow for seamless travel across networks and equipping people with new skills as growth in digital and carbon-neutral catches-up to traditional industry.
