North West HE Enterprise Champions Phase 2 Project (NCEE)

The HE Enterprise Champions Project in the North West Region of England was supported by the CLG, financed by EU funding and is managed by NCEE in partnership with NwUEU. The original project (Phase 1) started in 2008. The Phase 2 project ran from September 2010 to 28th February 2015. Eight institutions from the North West region were engaged in Phase 2.
