Ahead of the ‘sold out’ Enterprise M3 ‘Celebrating our Innovation Region’ Annual Conference, taking place on 3rd October 2023, we are proud to share our Annual Report for 2022-23.
As the UK’s fourth largest economy, EM3 is a productive, highly skilled region, making a significant contribution towards UK innovation and growth. EM3 LEP has played a key part in contributing to the growth and prosperity in our region, creating jobs, boosting skills and helping businesses to thrive. Some notable achievements during 2022-23 include:
Launching the Annual Report for 2022-23, Michael Queen, Chair of Enterprise M3 said:
“Over the past year EM3 LEP has driven growth and prosperity across Hampshire and west Surrey, delivered services for and built on our strong partnerships with businesses, local authorities, universities, schools and colleges. Our successes, outlined in detail in the Annual Report, build on over a decade of delivering for our region. Since we were established in 2011, we have invested in economic growth, delivered bespoke business support, driven innovation, attracted international investment, supported low carbon initiatives and boosted employment and skills.
“Since the year end the Government has announced that LEP services will be integrated into County Councils and in the months ahead the EM3 team will continue to ensure that EM3 businesses can thrive and our region’s people have the skills needed for future success. We will be pressing ahead with our high impact plans for 2023-24 and in the months ahead will be working closely with both Hampshire County Council and Surrey County Council to jointly develop a well-funded plan for the future of LEP services. Together we will ensure that our businesses, district local authorities, universities, schools and colleges in our region continue to benefit from targeted, expert support and the collaborative spirit that has enabled EM3 to achieve so much.”
