The Supplier Briefing will take place with the North East LEP's Innovation Team on Monday 5th October, 10:00-13:00 GMT via Zoom. Registration is via Eventbrite using this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e... deadline for registrations is 08:00 on Friday 2nd October 2020.
The North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP) and its partners support the region's business community to boost our competitiveness, manage the impact of the pandemic and plan for economic recovery. Our work is guided by the North East Strategic Economic Plan, which sets out our ambition to create more and better jobs.
To complement and run alongside the North East Strategic Economic Plan, we want to delve deeper into the how global drivers of change and future trends will dominate the UK and global economies and to examine how the region can prosper from economic activity in the associated developing, nascent or new markets. What are the drivers and areas of industry that will provide the greatest economic growth opportunities in the future? Which are most relevant to the North East's innovation and other capabilities? And how can the North East capitalise on future opportunity by supplying into the value chains of the cross-sector economic markets and industries that are at the forefront of global transformation?
The North East LEP wishes to appoint an appropriately qualified and specialist supplier to undertake an independent Economic Markets Foresight Analysis (the Project) on behalf of the North East. We want to identify the short, medium and long-term opportunities our region should focus on to support our immediate economic recovery, and those that will help grow our economy in the future too; creating jobs for local people, attracting investment in the region, and improving our economic activity rates and productivity.
The supplier briefing is being held to:
o Engage with the supplier market to assist the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP) to form the specification for the project;
o Discuss openly the outcomes needed by the North East LEP with suppliers working in the field of economic foresight; and
o Stimulate innovation in the design and delivery of the project.
The outcome of the supplier briefing discussions will assist the North East LEP to:
o Understand options for creativity in undertaking the project;
o Be specific about high-level boundaries, and how we describe our requirements regarding the approach to and methodology for the project; and
o Be clear about limitations on delivering the scope of work and including resource constraints; in order to
o Finalise the specification
