The Launch of the West Midlands Data Lab

WMREDI and its partners have launched the West Midlands Data Lab. The data lab provides a single interactive portal for a wealth of up to the minute regional data and research.

A unique tool to inform decision making around key investments and policy formulation for economic, social and environmental benefit in the West Midlands.

The site provides access to live data and Power BI dashboards, intelligence briefings, information on the data lab projects, and access to the latest in-depth research alongside our latest state of the region report and a range of supporting evidence.

Rebecca Riley, Administrative Director, City-REDI / WMREDI:

“The Launch of the Data Lab marks an important milestone in the collaborative approach of WMREDI, developing longer-term partnerships for data analytics and data sharing to answer the challenging questions we face now and in the future”

Professor Delma Dwight, Director of Black Country Consortium’s Economic Intelligence Unit:

“The West Midlands Lab puts the power of data and research at the fingertips of diverse private and public sector partners from across the region. A better understanding of regional needs and opportunities will enable Data Lab users to target investment for the widest possible economic and social impact.”
