RET Update September 2022

Sep 30, 2022

Welcome to our September newsletter!

This edition is focused on how EU funds are contributing to the ambition to reach net zero.  Read on to see how projects are supporting the circular economy, reducing the carbon footprint of industry, delivering major scientific and technological innovation, upskilling individuals, and making use of the natural environment to support decarbonisation.

We have been delighted to host some of our network meetings in person recently, enabling productive partnership discussion at a group and individual level.  Our SE SME Competitiveness Network members also enjoyed a tour of the bustling Newport Market, learning how it’s become home to a dynamic mix of businesses and work spaces alongside the fabulous food and stalls on offer!

Work has begun on our next short film that will demonstrate how ESF funds are supporting people into work and further learning, to gain qualifications and reach their potential in the workplace – look out for sneak previews on our Twitter page coming soon!

An invitation to share your thoughts on our RET service will soon drop into your inboxes.  We would love to hear what you would like us to deliver in the coming months so we can continue to provide a service that meets the needs of all our stakeholders – please help us out by responding to our survey!
