Knowledge Economy

Welcome to the knowledge economy.

Cheshire East is the very definition of a dynamic knowledge economy: we’re at the heart of a region with one of the largest science and technology clusters in the UK, and an economy out-performing the UK’s growth by 25%.

Our rich culture of innovation and research stretches from antibiotic resistance to cancer drug development and from luxury car manufacturing to cutting edge financial technology. Our talent pool is equally impressive. With a significantly higher proportion of our 185,000 workforce already in skilled scientific, technical, financial and manufacturing roles than elsewhere in the UK, our businesses collaborate in globally important research and development across a wide spectrum of disciplines. Little wonder, then, that Cheshire East attracts some of the world’s biggest businesses alongside pioneering start-ups; see more about us on our Facts & Figures page.

We also deliver a package of support to de-risk the investment process for companies relocating to the area.  This includes assistance with suitable premises, training and recruitment, promoting the investment and identifying the right customers. Learn more about why you should invest in Cheshire in our Inward Investment Brochure.
