Hosting Baroness Nicky Morgan at Mi-IDEA

Connected cows, bees with backpacks and Innovation Thursdays…

Some pretty exciting things happen at Mi-idea, our innovation centre in Manchester. But it’s not every day you entertain a Secretary of State.

That’s exactly what happened when we were joined by Baroness Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

Her visit was not only an opportunity to explore the innovation taking place in our Mi-IDEA centre, but to reflect together on the huge opportunity for regional growth in the UK.
