At the 2012 Manufacturing Summit on 23 February, Business Secretary Vince Cable announced that Professor Anne Green, Institute for Employment Research, University of Warwick, will be a member of the Lead Expert Group of the Foresight Project on the Future of Manufacturing.
The project calls on industry and academic expertise from the UK and abroad to explore how the UK can maximise key opportunities and mitigate risks. In doing so, it will provide a robust evidence base to help ensure that policy decisions taken today are resilient in an uncertain future.
The Lead Expert Group (LEG) of eminent academic and private sector experts from a range of disciplines works alongside the Foresight team. The project’s fresh thinking, innovative evidence base and futures analysis will help inform policy makers.
A geographer by background, Anne Green has substantial experience of researching employment, non-employment, skills, regional and local labour market issues, migration and commuting, and associated policy topics. Current and recent research concerns the impacts of labour migration and geographical mobility more generally, the geography of employment and worklessness, industrial and occupational change, employability, local skills strategies, and the role of place attachment in understanding labour market behaviour.
Anne is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Society of Arts, an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences and a member of the Regional Studies Association. Her current research projects include:
