CAGE Conference

The "Policy and the UK’s Competitive Advantage: Evidence from 10 Years of Research", conference will discuss the impact on policy, and more broadly, of the research that CAGE researchers have been conducting since the centre began in January 2010.

The ESRC-funded centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE), based at the Department for Economics at the University of Warwick, completes 10 years of funding at the end of 2019. To mark this occasion, CAGE is hosting a policy impact day on Thursday 27 June at the University of Warwick.

Date: 27 June 2019
Venue: MR1, Warwick Business School and Radcliffe Conference Centre

The day will feature sessions covering research specific to each of CAGE's four themes. The morning will begin with two thematic sessions. This will be followed by a lunchtime keynote address on policy and uncertainty by Nick Bloom (Stanford University). After lunch, Dame Frances Cairncross will chair a Policy Panel about broad issues of productivity, competitive advantage and policy in the UK; the panellists include Tera Allas (McKinsey Center for Government), Nick Bloom (Stanford University), Nick Crafts (CAGE director) and Rebecca Riley (NIESR / ESCOE). The afternoon will continue with the final two thematic sessions and conclude with a networking reception.
