Green shoots in sight for Greater Manchester

Last year we witnessed the beginning of an unprecedented global pandemic; an event which has presented an enormous threat to the health of communities the world-over. However, in the midst of such uncertainty, nations have collectively proven that together we have the tolerance, capability and agility to rapidly re-prioritise and change the way we live and work for the greater good.

COVID-19 has brought about a global reappraisal of economic priorities which has firmly put people and the planet first. And following the launch of Greater Manchester’s new Economic Vision at the end of 2020, our city region is poised to leverage the expertise of our deeply inventive and collaborative eco-system in order to rebuild and accelerate the growth of industry and create new highly skilled jobs for a cleaner, greener and healthier world.

Where the Industrial Revolution was born, Greater Manchester is home to an established community of experts who are continually powering innovation – a major driver for new investment into the region. Launching soon, the region’s new Innovation GM programme will focus on building out the existing R&D infrastructure by providing key talent and better networks; making it easier for businesses to test and commercialise new ideas, and by creating more visible innovation zones.

Already this year we have seen the launch of The University of Manchester’s new Christabel Pankhurst Institute for Health Technology which promotes the leading role of women in science and adds even more depth to a flourishing culture of health innovation in the city region.

MIDAS’ vision for raising Greater Manchester’s profile and attracting more high value investment has never been more ambitious. But today, we stand more committed to championing this new blueprint for the modern economy and crucially, we acknowledge that people and the planet are at the heart of productivity and profitability.

As always the team at MIDAS are here to support and inspire your business to excel in Greater Manchester. Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can help you to innovate your products and services or if you need any support and guidance following the EU Exit.
