  • Increase capacity and skills for the development of strong projects in the region;
  • Increase awareness of the successes and challenges of the 2007-13 ERDF programme;
  • Engage with local enterprise partnerships (LEPs) and the Local Growth Team; and
  • Raise awareness, interest and engagement in the 2014-20 programme.

Speakers at the event included Mark Foley from DCLG East Midlands, Rowena Limb from BIS East Midlands, and Andrew Pritchard from East Midlands Councils. Delegates also heard from three ERDF projects in the region, including Prince’s Trust, Electric Corby and the Renewal Trust.
