Stakeholders in the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor came together to help generate ideas for the initiative’s future at a workshop on Thursday.
Delegates from businesses and public sector organisations packed into a room at Hethel Engineering Centre for the workshop, which saw participants split into four teams to work on ways the Corridor could be developed to support economic growth in the region.

Ideas generated at the event, and a similar session being held in Cambridge on Tuesday, will be used by the Tech Corridor team to help shape the initiative’s strategy.
The workshop was brought to life by event artist Rebecca Osborne, who created a striking drawing depicting some of the key themes discussed during the morning.

Great morning spent at Hethel discussing how to promote Cambridge-Norwich Tech Corridor… Should we be focusing on places or the spaces in between? https://t.co/NT4Vwk9CGJ @hudsonarch pic.twitter.com/HorI5PCvlP
