With our historic links with the RAF and long-standing history in engineering and manufacturing, the defence and security sector was identified in the LEP's emerging Local Industrial Strategy as a major opportunity for economic growth.
The Greater Lincolnshire LEP's Defence and Security Board will promote the region’s ability to enhance, develop and support Government programmes and private industry in this high-tech, high-value sector.
The Board aims to influence the Government’s policies to locate more defence and security activities in Greater Lincolnshire, establishing which of the sector’s capabilities should be priority focuses and will also seek to establish the size and demographic of Greater Lincolnshire’s ex-defence and security population.
