“This was a really worthwhile course which provided real data and allowed policy makers time to consider their implications. The ability to debate and share knowledge was really beneficial”.

Head of Manufacturing, UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

“CIIP insights helped us identify the essential elements to promote a new Economic Development Policy for our region. Following the workshops, the ‘Bilbao Smart Specialisation Plan’ was launched. The Plan has already proved beneficial in allowing the region to participate in outstanding exchange networks at a European level”.

Special Policy Advisor, Bilbao City Council

“I was really impressed with the professionalism displayed by the team from scoping to delivery. They were flexible and willing to customise the content of the course to meet our needs, even accommodating the rather last-minute request to add a seminar at the end of the workshop for other colleagues. I received excellent feedback from colleagues who attended the workshop”.
