An Innovation Deal for the Liverpool City Region
Launch of the Liverpool City Region’s Innovation Prospectus
We were thrilled to co-host this event with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and the University of Liverpool. The Liverpool City Region’s Innovation Prospectus is a bold and ambitious document, which promises 5% GVA investment in research development and describes the City Region’s strategy for strengthening its private-public-academic research clusters, while making sure local people are equipped with the skills to take up high quality jobs.
4 March 2022
The Liverpool City Region APPG was thrilled to host the Heseltine Institute for Public Policy, Practice and Place for it’s first meeting of 2022. The Institute’s Sue Jarvis presented a research paper, entitled ‘A Prosperity Plan for Levelling Up the Liverpool City Region. The APPG also heard from the Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram, Mick Whitley, MP for Birkenhead, and Professor Irena Grugulis, Co-Chair of ReWAGE.
