The Centre for the New Midlands CIC launched in 2020 as a Community Interest Company. The organisation is a not-for-profit company, headquartered at Friars House in Coventry city centre.
The centre’s mission is to develop and disseminate new ideas to enrich the lives of the region’s citizens and to enhance political discourse across the area.
Through collaboration with industry and academia, the centre aims to discover new solutions to some of the region’s biggest social and economic challenges and help to shape a New Midlands.
Alison Hurst, Director of the Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands has joined the Centre for the New Midlands Digital Leadership Board with the responsibility to shape the CIC’s work across Cyber Security.
On her appointment, Alison said: “I’m delighted to join the New Midlands Digital Leadership Board, I think that the centre’s ambition to help tackle some of the region’s social and economic challenges will make a big difference to the lives of those that will benefit from the work carried out.
"I am particularly honoured to be supporting the region in terms of cyber security and to be part of this excellent initiative."
