This project was awarded funding in March 2020.
The project will identify and deliver impact-based interventions aimed at growing and connecting the manufacturing and engineering industry and clusters in the region through the existing NAAME network. The key outputs from the project will be:
- A development plan which analyses the economic profile of the manufacturing and engineering sector in Norfolk and Suffolk and sets out a list of evidence-based strategic recommendations to grow the sector, improve productivity and develop a cluster-led approach to economic development. These recommendations will form the basis of the NAAME delivery plan.
- A talent sharing platform created which enables staff to be shared between firms; and
- A staff resource for a fixed-term period of 2 years to deliver the interventions identified by the development plan.
