East Mids markets: search for partners in Leicester and beyond

MIRA Technology Park, Leicestershire

Team Leicestershire used Mipim to seek private investment in four big science, space, technology and housing projects.

From science and enterprise parks to new manufacturing sites, they presented a myriad of investment and development opportunities in the hope of securing the private sector partners needed to deliver them. 

Team Leicester took a record 20 sponsors to Mipim, and for the second year running joined The Midlands UK Pavilion to present a unified package to developers and highlight its role in driving the ‘Midlands Engine’. 

The team focused on four projects worth an estimated total of £10bn: the Ashton Green housing development in Leicester; Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park; Space Park Leicester; and the MIRA Technology Park near Hinckley. So what do each of these projects comprise?
