BioYorkshire Partnership welcomes landmark devolution deal
"The BioYorkshire partnership strongly welcomes the landmark devolution deal announced today for York and North Yorkshire. We are confident the agreement, the new local powers it confers, and the funding being made available will all support our goal to make our region a world-leading powerhouse of innovation, growth and bio-based scientific research.
We look forward to continuing our work with local leaders and, in time, the new Mayor, to create skills, jobs and green economic growth for the future”
