SEMLEP is working with the Local Authorities, the Arc Universities' Group and neighbouring Local Enterprise Partnerships and business Boards to develop a long-term strategy and secure investment for the Arc.

On 5th October 2020, the Arc Leadership published the Arc's Economic Prospectus. This sets out a joint vision for the Arc, shared ambitions and investment propositions that will enable the Arc to fulfil its true potential to deliver transformational economic growth that will benefit the whole of the UK. Setting out the area's 'asks of Government', the region seeks recognition and joined up investment from Government to enhance the area's science, technologies and innovative industries, tackle connectivity and congestion constraints and provide the skills that industry requires to enable the Arc to pursue its role as a leading global innovation economy.
