IED Workshop: Impact of Brexit on Local Economic Development
Thu 3 November 2016, 14:00 – 17:00 GMT
The IED is hosting a workshop in the South West for IED Members and Local Authority and LEP Economic Development staff to discuss current and future responses to the impact of Brexit on local economic development. This will include introductory presentations covering the results of a survey of Local Authorities and LEPs, recent research on how LEPs and Local Authorities should work together and how to support underperforming towns and cities. However, the bulk of the session will be an opportunity for participants to share their experiences and learn from each other.
Speakers include: Professor Chris Balch (University of Plymouth), Keith Burge (ERS and former Chair IED), Dr Gareth Jones (Hardisty Jones Associates).
