London, March 5, 2020 – Gravity, the UK’s first commercial smart campus – the blueprint for a smarter, cleaner future was featured on the BBC Ten O’clock News last night regarding the need for the South West not to be overlooked in the Budget.

This interview comes in response to the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government ambition to “level up” economic performance in all parts of the country.
