The Lancashire Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing (AEM) Watchtower project is hosting an event to support businesses on the Enterprise Zone.
The free event based at Lancashire Energy HQ on 2 August is aimed to help businesses who are struggling to recruit or retain staff.
Watchtower is a 2-year £1,000,000 initiative from Lancashire County Council to support the Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing (AEM) sector targeted at tackling some of the economic impacts of Covid-19 and stimulating growth and is delivered by North West Aerospace Alliance and Community & Business Partners.
The programme runs all morning and will include:
- An intelligence function to identify and protect Lancashire’s key aerospace assets and businesses.
- A talent retention service to help people who have lost skilled jobs in Engineering and Manufacturing to find new work.
- Support for businesses to find new contracts which fit their manufacturing capabilities nationally and internationally.
- Support for businesses to innovate, for example, developing new products or new ways of working.
