The D2N2 Joint Investment Strategy is a £1 million pound, 2 year program of support that has been jointly and equally invested into by the CITB and Nottingham City Council.

The initiative has been designed to support growth within the local construction sector by providing funded training for D2N2 businesses, creating suitable pathways for entrants looking to join the industry and by showcasing opportunities and expertise through events across the region.
