Representatives from the 15 growth hubs in Lancaster University’s Wave 2 Growth Hub Programme came together on Monday 28 July, at the Royal Society of Arts in London, to discuss regional and national evaluations of their activities. 

The Evaluation Panel for the programme, based in the Knowledge Exchange and Research group in LUMS, organised the day to share and promote good practice and to suggest a range of potential tools to aid the evaluation process being undertaken by each of the growth hubs.

James Stancombe, Programme Manager at Velocity Growth Hub (operating in the Milton Keynes city region), said about the evaluation process, “It’s immensely helpful to get that help from Lancaster University and to hear how other growth hubs are planning to do it.”
