Forum to gather insights from firms
The North of Tyne Combined Authority is supporting the National Innovation Centre for Rural Enterprise’s (NICRE) network to gather insights from firms and channel their views to policymakers.
Councillor Glen Sanderson, the authority’s cabinet member for rural, said NICRE’s Rural Business Beacons helps make sure the rural business voice is ‘heard and amplified’.
The forum aims to help inform future enterprise policy and support. The views and experiences of rural businesses in the North East gathered via the network will also help to shape NICRE’s research to make it more relevant.
