Event description

Description

On behalf of the Liverpool City Region (LCR) Combined Authority (CA), the LCR Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has commissioned specialist consultants CBN to produce a comprehensive digital infrastructure action plan for the primary purpose of driving transformational economic growth.

The action plan is specifically linked to the LCR Metro Mayors signature ambition to be the best digitally connected city region in the UK. But it is a plan that needs to be informed by the needs and priorities of businesses, public bodies and communities in all parts of the city region. On behalf of the Combined Authority, CBN would therefore like to invite you to attend a consultation event to identify:

  • Critical needs and use cases: the future connectivity and data needs of the public and private sector, including infrastructure to support digital and tech industries and to prepare to capture the benefits of 5G technologies.
  • Opportunities: to leverage public sector demand and assets; to deploy infrastructure quickly and cheaply; to use powers available through devolution to coordinate policy and delivery; to access other funding, funding including through the BDUK LFFN programme.
  • Challenges: barriers to rapid deployment, including resources, legal and policy.
