At the start of 2021 Midlands Cyber re-signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that underpins their economic partnership with the Maryland Department of Commerce and by extension, the Cyber association of Maryland. Through this strategic partnership all Midlands Cyber Business and Academic community can benefit from the opportunity to access the US market and an industry that is 5 times the size of the UK cyber sector.
The signing of the MOU not only sparked further international opportunity for Cyber innovation in the West Midlands, it has strengthened the international Academic connections with 60 federal agencies and 50 Universities in the state. This academic partnership adds to a rich network of centres of academic excellence already situated in the region.
In 2018 The Midlands Cyber team exhibited at Cyber Tech Israel, with the aim of raising awareness about the region as the UK’s leading location for cyber expertise. While in Israel, Midlands Cyber met with several companies seeking the UK as a future market place for collaboration in sales and research.
The visit gave a great insight into the opportunity for future projects, and what Israel can offer the Midlands in return. The success of the trip resulted in an inward investment mission to the UK, with 11 representatives from cyber technology businesses in Israel visiting Worcestershire's world-renowned manufacturing businesses.
Midlands Cyber are excited to re-establish this connection and are looking at exhibiting again to represent our new industry focus and dedicated ecosystem.
