The Sheffield City Region is filled with hubs for innovation and creativity, built on a proud history of making things. But are we truly supporting this, and are we realising the potential it offers the city region and its people?

Grant Thornton invite RSA Fellows to a day spent coming up with real action that will help answer the question of 'how can we make Sheffield the innovation and creativity capital of Europe'?

  • What if we brought together manufacturing, creative and technological innovation?
  • What if we attracted greater levels of inward investment?
  • What if we supported the right skills for success in our young people?
  • What if we were connecting big business with small business for the benefit of all?
  • What if we inspired the next generation to act…?

Imagine what could be achieved for business, community and people in the Sheffield City Region if we worked together to make its hidden secrets its weapons for success.
