The GM ESIF Priority Axis - Science, innovation and knowledge economy delivers against this Priority Axis in the ERDF OP. It aims at promoting Research and Innovation by enhancing the links between research organizations and community/social enterprise to develop business to enhance and diversify GM’s economic base. The development of sub-regional sector development in the food industry focusses on existing and emerging growth sectors and targeted provision for businesses in deprived communities and hard to reach groups. In this project, we want to improve governance and opportunity around the food industry in GM in order to enable the development of new innovation in the food value chain that capitalizes on emerging opportunities from sector development.
