Loughborough & Leicester Enterprise Zone
Charnwood Campus undertakes a new project to obtain the Enterprise Zone status. The project, which covers two sites in Loughborough (Charnwood Campus being one of them) and one in Leicester, has been developed in conjunction with Loughborough University, Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council, Charnwood Borough Council.
In the 2016 budget statement it was announced that a new ground breaking research and development-led Enterprise Zone (EZ) would be created in Leicestershire. The new science and hi-tech manufacturing-themed EZ is set to bring nearly 25,000 new jobs and £180million over the next 25 years through the creation of a ‘zone of excellence’ to support new and growing businesses to bring their innovative ideas and products to the market.
Leicestershire is already at the cutting edge of innovative research, innovation and product development – brought about particularly through our three first-rate universities and the new EZ will help to cement Leicestershire’s role as the R&D capital of the Midlands.
