‘Meet the LEPs’ – Advanced Engineering Initiatives Via Newly Formed LEPs Under the Spotlight

September 17 2012

As successors to the former UK regional development agencies, a selective profile of newly formed Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) will take centre stage at this year’s Advanced Engineering UK group of events. The presentations programme is specifically designed to showcase and contrast the range of initiatives that are now being rolled out by these similarly mandated, newly formed, more locally focused organizations, in support of specific advanced engineering and high value manufacturing and technology activity streams. With 39 LEPs already active across the UK, these are increasingly important facilitators of economic regional growth and development at sub-national level; they are also connectivity hubs between OEMs, local and national government, and diverse SME groups.

Organizers of the 2012 Advanced Engineering UK group of events are inviting a selection of these newly formed LEPs to showcase their current programmes and philosophy for specifically supporting and capitalizing on the advanced engineering and high value manufacturing sector. Through a scheduled programme of daily free to attend open presentations, UK and international attendees will have the chance to learn what positive action streams are currently unfolding and in preparation, and what this means in practical terms to stakeholder groups involved in the advanced engineering sector. Specific invited areas of coverage include:

LEP Initiatives for inward and outward investment into and from this sector;

Specialist hubs and incubators for subgroups;

Partnerships and support from regional OEMs and Tier 1s;

LEP Skills development programmes;

Education and support on SME finance;

Links and Partnerships with regional educational, academic and R&D institutions;

Process improvement initiatives – collaboration with bodies such as the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS).
