GOVERNANCE

The SW RDSC has a Steering Group to provide leadership to the cluster and guide its strategy and work plan. Acting on behalf of the wider cluster, they are ambassadors promoting its activity and value proposition. The group is supported by a Programme Manager and Coordinator, responsible for executing and delivering the cluster’s schedule of activity.

The SWRDSC is supported by the Great South West partnership.
