New plan aims to maximise innovation in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s Local Industrial Strategy will look to maximise productivity and innovation in its leading sectors of life sciences, food production, artificial intelligence and advanced manufacturing.

Launched on 19 July, the plan includes a new Skills, Talent and Apprenticeship Hub that will look to support the local community through employers, providers, and learners, while advocating collaboration with local partners to develop key infrastructure projects to support growth and expand the region’s innovation powerhouse.

Mayor of the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority James Palmer said: “This bold strategy has clear actions to help firms grow, become more productive and increase local and global reach, while fostering and sustaining broad-based growth across our economy for years to come.”
