This ERDF-funded project provided innovation support to businesses in the transport manufacturing supply chain in the East Midlands.
This evaluation followed on from our earlier evaluation of the Transport iNet Phase 2 project. Our evaluation assessed both the impacts delivered by the project and the management and delivery arrangements.
The evaluation included a survey of beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries (carried out by Spirul) and consultations with a number of people either involved in or with an interest in the project. It also included case studies of a number of beneficiaries.
Our evaluation demonstrated that the project had been successful in achieving its targets and objectives. We also used the evaluation survey process to identify the types of support businesses would need in the future.
