Powering the Midlands Engine for Growth

Midlands Innovation is playing a major role in driving forward the Midlands Engine for Growth, the Government’s initiative to stimulate productivity and prosperity in the Midlands.

Through the Midlands Engine for Growth, the Government wants to raise the long-term growth rate of the region, create hundreds of thousands of new jobs and add £34 billion to the regional economy by 2030.

Universities are expected to play a crucial role, working with business and industry to boost productivity and competitiveness across the Midlands.
