£14 million for Analysis, Thematics and Networks, £14000 for an Intern

Surely some of us can get together and apply for some of this huge amount money that is floating around Government departments and The European Commission? This is in addition to the last lot mentioned in my post a couple of weeks ago. It would be easy to grumble about wasting our money but why not actually get some and do something useful with it before somebody else does? And, of course, include me in the deal somewhere!

  • Training for board members.
  • Facilitating SME engagement with the partnership.
  • Identifying economic benefits of working between LEPs on infrastructure issues or sectoral priorities.
