During November BCTA, in partnership with Sustainability West Midlands (SWM), held a series of events in the Black Country to inform and assist organisations on bidding for the European Regional Development Fund. Over 60 delegates attended to find out more about the relevant Priority Axis, examples of best practice and gaps in provision. As well as senior representatives of BCTA and SWM, who were on hand to give advice and support and to answer questions, there were also presentations from Black Country ERDF projects and stakeholders including:
Priority 1 – Alan Carr (Low Carbon Policy & Partnership Manager, Innovation Alliance for the West Midlands) and Alana Correa (Smart Concept Project).
Priority 2 – Ravi Kumar (Digital Lead at the Black Country Consortium) and James Barfield (Digital Passport Project).
Priority 3 – Gary Dimmock (Outreach & Business Solutions Centres Director), Bob Harrington (City of Wolverhampton Council on the Transformational GOLD project), Josie Kelly and Sandra Harding from the RAISE Project.
Priority 4 – Anna Bright (SWM), Michelle Mansell (Groundwork West Midlands on the Low Carbon Growth Support Project), Glenn Barrowman (University of Wolverhampton on the BECCI Project).
Priority 6 – Neil Wyatt (NW Environmental Limited), Matt Mellors (EnTRESS project), and Richard Preston (Titford Pools & Canal Improvement Project).
All documents from the events can be found on our website.
We wish to thank all attendees, speakers and SWM for joining us at the events and we hope they were informative to you all.
