New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership
Sponsor of the Networking Reception
New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) works with businesses, academia, and the public sector to drive growth and enterprise in Norfolk and Suffolk.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Agri-Food Industry Council provides strategic leadership for the region’s agri-food sector, reporting to the LEP Board and driving forward projects (around innovation, skills and inward investment) and initiatives such as working with partners in the Eastern region (including Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough).
New Anglia LEP hosts both the New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (NAAME) and Space East cluster networks. Both of these clusters have worked in collaboration with Agri-TechE and partners to drive innovation in the agri-food sector.
The funding for REAP 2023 has come from New Anglia LEP’s Connected Innovation programme, which connects together 25 innovation hubs, research institutes, universities, and Freeport East to focus on driving cross-sector innovation in Norfolk and Suffolk. Agri-Tech is a key area of focus for this programme working together with regional partners such as Agri-TechE and Norwich Research Park and national partners such as Innovate UK (including Catapult Network, EDGE, KTN) and Government Departments (including the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs and the Department for Business and Trade).
