The Midlands Engine is a pan-regional, apolitical partnership that convenes, connects and acts as a focal point to drive economic growth – for the greater benefit of our people, places and businesses. This shared aim of greater prosperity is what unites us and what directs our work, in collaborattion.
To achieve positive change, we focus our efforts in those areas that data and evidence tell us have the greatest potential for impact. Together, we make sure the Midlands voice is heard, championing our region through our shared intent, collaborative investment and a unified voice, direct to government.
