The West Midlands Economic Forum (WMEF) was established in 2007, aiming to improve understanding of the regional economy in a global context.
We provide bespoke independent research, as well as offering a neutral venue for dialogue through an extensive programme of events for the business community.
Drawing in a broad range of sectors, the West Midlands Economic Forum brings together an array of experts on the regional economy. These include policy makers (national, regional, European and global), representatives of financial institutions, manufacturers, economists, academics, and members of the voluntary sector.
Working closely with the West Midlands Economic Forum are a range of higher education institutions located in the region. This enables the Forum to develop its research, and ensures we keep up-to-date with best practice internationally. Currently these include:
Aston Centre for Europe
Coventry University Business School
Staffordshire University Business School
Warwick Business School
University of Wolverhampton Business School
