Share your ideas for Greater Manchester's Innovation Ecosystem

Innovation Greater Manchester is a private-public partnership with a remit to drive forward progress and deliver Greater Manchester’s innovation vision. Innovation Greater Manchester is being led by a board of leading figures from industry, universities, and public sector organisations.

Government has committed to work with Greater Manchester on a three-year Innovation Accelerator pilot. This is an important milestone in taking forward Innovation Greater Manchester's vision.

Through the Innovation Accelerator, Innovation Greater Manchester will develop plans to boost innovation and attract new R&D investment in the city-region, building on local strengths and opportunities. Innovation Greater Manchester will receive dedicated support from the UK Government to address policy and regulatory barriers to growing the local innovation ecosystem, alongside having access to a share of a new £100m research fund.

Innovation Greater Manchester wants to bring together a wide range of business-led ideas to shape the Innovation Accelerator plan. Some of these will be supported to access a share of this initial available funding.

The call is open to anyone with ideas on how to improve GM’s innovation ecosystem including the social economy, so if you have a view be sure to share it!
