This free event, co-hosted by Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the Local Government Association (LGA), the NHS Confederation and Universities UK brought together leaders from across local government, higher education and health and care to explore the local partnerships necessary to deliver the Industrial Strategy.
In particular we drew on practical lessons from two cross-sector flagship programmes run throughout 2017-18: the Local Growth Academy and Leading Places Programme, which focused on the role of Anchor Institutions and place-based leadership to drive Local and Inclusive Growth.
