Wirral positioned to capitalize on new £2bn innovation fund

IN its Autumn Statement this week, the government unveiled a new Industrial Strategy to position the UK as the "global go to place for scientists, innovators and tech investors."

Wirral Council Leader, Cllr Phil Davies, says the Government's new funds for Innovation and Research and Development will further strengthen the Council's plans to grow the borough's economy and said the additional £2bn of government investment in cutting edge technologies via the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund is in line with the Council's Growth Plan.

Cllr Davies said:- "Wirral already boasts 1 of the highest levels of new patent registrations in Europe and sits at the heart of a science and technology cluster stretching from Daresbury to Broughton including Liverpool University, Cammell Laird, Unilever and Capenhurst.  Our regeneration strategy is attracting new investments in advanced manufacturing, technology and clean energy, so we hope this fund is made available to local firms, the local authority and Liverpool City Region to continue enhancing Wirral's growing reputation for excellence in Science and Technology."
