This page contains links and resources for other sectors, not covered by the South West RDA priority definitions.
The South West RDA has prioritised support for eight main industrial sectors which are perceived to be most closely related to employment and economic development in the region (Advanced Engineering, Biotechnology, Construction, Environmental Technology, Food & Drink, Information & Communications Technology, Marine & Offshore Technologies, and Tourism). Whilst there is no doubt that these sectors have a significant impact in the region, there is also a wide range of additional industries which play a major part in skills, education and employment in the South West. This page presents some of the most significant resources and links for these industries.
