Thank you for agreeing to take part in our business survey.

Since it was set up, the Northern Powerhouse Partnership has been working to develop consensus among businesses, civic leaders and others about how the North of England can be more successful.  The focus is on collaborating to create a Northern Powerhouse. Via the Northern Powerhouse Independent Economic Review (NPIER), the North has itself identified 4 prime capabilities – a collection of assets, expertise and businesses which are pan-Northern, highly productive, and internationally competitive. These will form the core of future economic growth and are:

  - Advanced Manufacturing
  - Energy
  - Health Innovation
  - Digital

This survey aims to understand what the key areas for development and action are. Any responses you provide will be anonymised and will not be attributable to you or your organisation, unless you indicate at the end of the survey that you wish for this to be attributable. Your responses will remain confidential and will only be used for the purpose of this work. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
