The Combined Authority’s key ambitions include: doubling the size of the local economy, developing outstanding connectivity by way of transport and digital links, helping provide adult education and retraining to create the UK’s most technically skilled workforce, and building international recognition of the region as a leading place in the world to live, work, learn, and do business.

Established in 2017 and led by a directly-elected mayor, James Palmer, the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority is a partnership of the seven councils in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and the Business Board (which serves as the Local Enterprise Partnership). Each partner is represented at the Combined Authority Board’s decision-making meetings.

“The global COVID-19 crisis has exposed digital connectivity as the new must-have for 21st Century business. Necessity is the mother of invention and companies are now having to work, communicate and trade in new ways, with digital know-how underpinning many of these changes. The Combined Authority is leading efforts to bounce the region beyond mere recovery and into transformation. These online events champion thought leadership in technology and knowledge-swapping within our region, helping participants explore and share advances and best practice,” said James Palmer, Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. “Innovation is key and ‘virtual networking’ like this - to share knowledge, ideas, technologies and skills - supports our commitment to economic resurgence, ensuring the ‘new normal’ is something better than the old one, defined by fresh ideas and a will to come back stronger.”

CW (Cambridge Wireless) have been involved with the CPCA for many years. These events are the start of a partnership which aims address some of the recommendations presented in the Digital Sector Strategy was published, written by Anglia Ruskin University, The Digital Sector Strategy Commission and CW we hope that these events start to address the aim to increase regional productivity through technological innovation, adoption & inclusion.

“As the facilitator for this series of events, I believe now is the time for companies across various industry sectors to consider the business possibilities arising from a number of key emerging technologies. As always, there is both opportunity and potential threat from the disruptive nature of new technology,” said Peter Whale, Founder & CEO of Vision Formers and CW Board Member. “I believe that businesses in the region are strongly placed to be the ones who create significant new business opportunities, grasping the incredible potential, innovating, and building strong partnerships with the significant local technology cluster, where many of these new technologies are imagined, created and first brought to market.”
