SLEP - SOUTH EAST LOCAL ENTERPRISE PARTNERSHIP
SOUTH EAST LOCAL ENTERPRISE PARTNERSHIP
The South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) brings together key leaders from business, local government, further and higher education
with the hope of creating an enterprising economy in England by exploring opportunities for enterprise while addressing barriers to growth.
We have yet to see any evidence of that.
The SE LEP Growth Deal includes:
Peter Jones became SE LEP chairman on 1 August 2013, taking over from John Spence OBE. Peter spent his working life in the City of London as a partner of Laing & Cruikshank and subsequently worked for Bankers Trust on Mergers and Acquisitions in London. He has held several non-exec directorships of UK, US, and Australian companies. Mr Jones was also a county councilor in East Sussex from 1997 and leader from 2001 until standing down in May 2013. He was one of the founding Board Members of SE LEP while leader of East Sussex County Council.
SOUTH EAST LOCAL TRANSPORT BOARD
Transport Bodies (LTB) were introduced by the Government in 2012 to provide greater local involvement in the prioritisation and the overseeing of the delivery of major local transport schemes following the Spending Review in 2014/2015.
HORIZON 2020 - TRANSPORT RESEARCH & INNOVATION
Horizon 2020 is the European Commission’s proposal to generate ideas, growth and jobs through the world’s largest collaborative programme for research and innovation (2014-2020).
In the transport sector, the Commission will strive for a balanced approach in implementing the programme that takes into account the specifics of each mode (rail, road, waterborne and air transport) while remaining holistic; an approach which reconciles competitiveness with sustainability and which invests both in technology and in relevant socio-economic research.
The four main priorities for transport research under Horizon 2020 are:
Keeping transport competitive: the European transport industry as a global leader.
Making transport research responsive: socio-economic research and forward-looking activities for policy-making.
CORDIS IDEAS - COMMUNITY RESEARCH
Investigator-driven ‘frontier research’, within the framework of activities commonly understood as ‘basic research’, is a key driver of wealth and social progress, as it opens new opportunities for scientific and technological advance, and is instrumental in producing new knowledge leading to future applications and markets.

THE BLUE BIRDS OF HAPPINESS
The Ecostar DC50 incorporates the patent Bluebird™ instant energy transfer system - allowing EV refuelling for road cars in around 60 seconds. This car is being developed at the pace of one day a week by volunteers. There is no funding available in Sussex or the UK for such enterprise - and Team Speedace and BMS have had no financial help from state organisations. Only the big boys and universities get assistance. It is thus all the more amazing that the car has progressed this far.
