Leeds City Region businesses boosted by launch of £16.4m support programmes
Businesses across Leeds City Region are set to benefit from two new programmes of support, launched this month by the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The first of these, the £9.2m Access Innovation programme will support SMEs to develop new products and services by accessing specialist expertise. The programme will help connect businesses to the knowledge base that exists in the region, including the largest concentration of universities outside of London.
Businesses will also be able to connect to other research organisations, such as Catapult Centres which provide access to expert technical support, equipment, and other resources that help create innovative ideas.
