Description

Local Growth Academy: Growth in all places?
Towards Local Industrial Strategies

The Government has signalled in the Industrial Strategy Green Paper an intention to intervene more and to do more to support the delivery of faster growth in all places across the UK. What is the scale of the problem and what challenges face policy makers seeking to position place at the heart of new programmes? What should the Shared Prosperity Fund do and what should it look like? What new limitations will government face when seeking to invest in firms, inside or outside of the single market? What should Local Industrial Strategies look like? And how can they be different from existing local economic strategies?

09.30 Registration and refreshments

10.00 The Scale of the Challenge

Dr Peter O’Brien, HEFCE Local Growth Team

A detailed look at the scale of the challenge of securing growth in all places, identifying long term, structural issues, and debunking a number of urban myths, what these mean for the new design of local industrial strategies and publically financed programmes.

1050h What role for Place in the Industrial Strategy?

Kevin Richardson, HEFCE Local Growth Team

A critical analysis of the challenges inherent and implicit within the Green / White Paper(s) which may restrict the scope, scale and depth of any possible new approaches.

1115h Emerging Government Thinking

Cities and Local Growth Unit (confirmed)

A chance for a government speaker to set out latest thinking in the context of the White Paper, especially in relation to the Shared Prosperity Fund.

1200h Good things from ESIF we should keep?

1230h Lunch

1315h Out with the old? What need for new institutions?

Local Government Association (confirmed)

Stable and consistent leadership by partnership based institutions are important for local growth but Pillar 10 considers the possible need for new, sub national institutions. Ministers have spoken of the need for a new statutory basis. How might these differ from existing and previous incarnations?

1345h What future for market intervention?

Jonathon Branton,
Partner & Head of EU / Competition, DWP LLP

Leaving the EU is most unlikely to lead to a complete end of restrictions of selective state support for firms and other undertakings. How might subsidies in the UK be regulated post Brexit and what are the different possible options within and outside the Single Market?

• What should a local industrial strategy look like?
