Introduction Background to the funding Equipping LEPs Key areas of NHS focus National and local intelligence Plenty of discussion points Introduction Informal way of sharing intelligence and information Tell us what works/doesnt work and what issues you would like to focus on in future
Help make these interactive! www.nhsconfed.org/esif Background to the funding ESIF supports economic and social development projects think jobs and growth EU funding that is devolved to EU member states, hence not competing/collaborating with other EU actors Has to be match-funded 2006-13 round of European Structural Funding saw c7bn devolved to England to spend National Graphine Institute in Manchester Campus for Ageing and Vitality in Newcastle (Albert Docks!)
plus Over 20,000 business start-ups Over 50,000 jobs Background to the funding Main funding pots are ERDF and ESF: The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) focuses on regional development, economic change and enhanced competitiveness. The ERDFs priorities are to: support innovation and the knowledge-based economy stimulate enterprise and support successful
businesses ensure sustainable development, production and consumption build sustainable communities. The European Social Fund (ESF) focuses on training, access to employment and social inclusion. The ESF was set up to: improve employment opportunities and help raise standards of living help people to get better skills and job prospects, particularly for those not in education, employment or training
help equip the workforce with the skills needed by business in a competitive global economy combat social exclusion. Background to the (new) funding Govt wanted to change the way money is spent and priorities determined for 20014 2020 Role of LEPs replaced role of RDAs, with much more devolved responsibility for leadership of local growth, including EU Structural Funds ESIF Growth Programme attempted to pull together ERDF and ESF (and parts of EAFRD - agriculture) England given 6.2bn for 2014 2020 for ESF and ERDF and govt committed to focus on the new priorities for this
investment Background to the (new) funding Funding across UK UK receives 10.8billion for ERDF and ESF for 2014-2020 England and the Devolved Administrations will see an equal (5.4%) real terms cut in funding compared to 2007-13. 3% of the budget for Transition and More Developed regions will be transferred to the Less Developed regions in proportion to their allocations. All Scottish regions will receive the equal 5.4% real terms cut in funding as per Scotland as a whole. English Transition regions will see an equal 14% real terms rise in funding
compared to 2013. English More developed regions will see an equal 1% real terms rise in funding compared to 2013. Funding for Gibraltar will be frozen in real terms. Funding roughly equates to levels of deprivation, Sheffield/Liverpool queried their allocations Background to the (new) funding Chosen top priorities for ESIF investments in England:
innovation and research and development support for small and medium-sized businesses low carbon skills employment and social inclusion Chosen nationally, to help shape local investments Background to the (new) funding UK also qualifies for Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) in 5 areas
170million to help young people aged 15 to 24 years find work, matched by ESF and project partners, bringing the total funding to nearly 490 million. YEI covers: Inner London - 35.7 million Merseyside - 22.2 million Southwest Scotland - 38.6 million Tees Valley & Durham - 19.8 million West Midlands - 42.2 million Background to the (new) funding EU rules and regulations still apply on ESIF UK government had to agree Partnership Agreement with European Commission, setting out the governments ESIF
plans, priorities and management arrangements Govt also needs to agree with EC separate Operational Programmes for England for ERDF and ESF, setting out strategy and priorities for use of the funds (see below for drafts) https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/draft-european-regional-development-fund-op erational-programme-2014-to-2020 https:// www.gov.uk/government/publications/european-social-fund-draft-operational-programme2014-to-2020 Why now for NHS? New investment priorities much more relevant to where NHS is now Regional NHS bodies well placed to open NHS up to LEPs
Core Cities agenda, inc Devomanc, links to this wider form of local economic integration Need to look for supplementary and complementary forms of funding in current climate and as NHS becomes bigger player in local economy Discussion point: NHS and ESIF Any questions so far? Equipping Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) All England money allocated notionally to the 39 LEPs, ranging from 750m to London to 14m for Buckinghamshire Thames Valley
Govt published list of key investment areas, national policies and generic activities the funds could support LEPs spent (long) time drawing up local ESIF strategies on how to invest money in their geographic area strategy should have been a partnership and way of securing future funding ideas and partners Govt gave continuous feedback on these strategies Equipping LEPs - realpolitik Govt vision for LEPs to spend the money diluted to fit with European Commission requirements We therefore propose to proceed with a model in which LEPs and partners have a key advisory role while decisions will remain with the Managing Authorities.
Only GLA has full intermediate body status and can manage/take decisions on all aspects of those programmes in London; Core Cities have control of c5-10% of ERDF Govt committed to review the position in next 12 months (but which govt?) https:// www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_ data/file/405641/ERDF_letter.pdf Equipping LEPs so what will they do? LEPs are still THE key local body to engage Their strategies are still being used All LEPs have a local ESIF Committee linking local partners with the Managing Authority (DWP, CLG)
LEPs still determine whether to use Opt-In bodies They could get more ESIF powers going forward Strategic relationship for NHS with LEPs goes well beyond ESIF eg Regional Growth Funds, strategic leadership of local growth, building a local investment plan Equipping LEPs so what will they do? The Managing Authorities work closely with local partners who provide: Practical advice and information to the Managing Authorities to assist in the preparation of local plans that contribute towards Operational Programme priorities and targets; Local intelligence to the Managing Authorities in the development of project calls (decided by the Managing Authorities) that reflect
Operational Programme and local development needs as well as match funding opportunities; Advice on local economic growth conditions and opportunities within the context of Operational Programmes and the local European Structural and Investment Funds Strategy to aid the Managing Authoritys assessments at outline and full application stage. Discussion point: Equipping LEPs How do we think AHSNs can best influence ESIF funding? E.g. How many NHS orgs have representation on ESIF Committees and/or LEP sub-groups?
Have commitments in ESIF strategies and associated discussions re health investment continued? To what extent have LEPs been open to discussion to shape calls? Key areas of NHS focus Research, development and innovation Supporting SMEs to commercialise R&D, especially those linked to health science technologies Creating physical infrastructure for innovation, including incubation space for new businesses active in innovation Building higher level workforce skills to support R&D Supporting innovation actors inc SMEs, social economy, research centres/universities to promote social innovation & innovation in health
Facilitating networks of SMEs seeking to commercialise R&D to bring new products/services to the market, esp through open innovation Who: AHSNs HEIs Acutes Key areas of NHS focus Skills and employment Innovative approaches to training for the unemployed Supporting low-skilled people in low-paid work to help them
progress, and for apprenticeships Innovative approaches to pre-employment training Supporting intermediate and high-level vocational provision for the unemployed and for career progression Who: LETBs NHS employers
CCGs FE DWP Key areas of NHS focus Social inclusion Tackling barriers to work, including mental health issues Targeting specific communities or ethnic minorities Developing the capacity of social entrepreneurs to address the needs of their local communities Developing the capacity of community groups to participate in the delivery of services to those furthest from the labour market
Who: Charities Public Health LETBs/AHSNs HWBs/CCGs Mental Health providers Key areas of NHS focus
Research, development and innovation All LEP plans for investing in this area have to be based on policy of Smart Specialisation EU concept that focuses on limiting public-private investments to where they will give biggest reward Smart specialisation is a new innovation policy concept designed to promote the efficient and effective use of public investment in research. Its goal is to boost regional innovation in order to achieve economic growth and prosperity, by enabling regions to focus on their strengths. Smart specialisation understands that spreading investment too thinly across several frontier technology fields risks limiting the impact in any one area.
Key areas of NHS focus Research, development and innovation Therefore Englands (draft) Smart Specialisation is the key national ESIF document in area of innovation: https:// www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/34169 5/bis_14_994_smart_specialisation_in_england_2.pdf It specifically references Innovation, Health and Wealth and role of AHSNs Innovation in Health and Wealth focuses on the NHS as a major investor and wealth creator in the UK, whose success in adopting innovation enables industries to invest in developing the technology and other products the NHS needs for its development. The aim of is to support the NHS in achieving systemic change in the way it operates; in pursuing innovations that add value for the service but not cost and in enabling the consistent and
widespread adoption and diffusion across the NHS. This involves both the supply of, but also critically the demand for, new and existing ideas, services and products. Central to this agenda is the relationship between the NHS, academia and industry. https://www.gov.uk/european-structural-investment-funds Call specification Local context This call for projects is for capital projects based in Greater Manchester which will aid Greater Manchester in developing technologies in the priorities identified above. There will be a later call for revenue projects looking at the commercialisation of these technologies. Applications should ensure that Greater Manchester continues to develop its influence in
these and related areas, and in particular projects which address these five priority areas: Increasing entrepreneurship and business growth Improve the productivity of existing science base Expand and accelerate the commercialisation of research Improve the profile of Greater Manchester science Improve Greater Manchesters Science and Technology skills base1 Applications should be led by or have close links to local Higher Education Institutions and have strong private sector partner involvement and investment. Specific areas of focus are Advanced Materials (including graphene) and Health Innovation (including e-health, stratified medicine and cancer research) as these have been identified as key areas of local strength for which there is global demand. Discussion point: areas of focus What are the opportunities for the NHS and
AHSNs? What is the role for the AHSN? Areas for future cooperation? Smart Specialisation (12.30pm, 14th May 2015) Talent for Care- skills & employment (12.30pm, 15th June 2015) Social Inclusion (12.30pm, 15th July 2015) Are these right? Any others?
