What drives local innovation? Comparing place-based and micro-geographic perspectives


This month the Enterprise Research Centre welcome Jo Turner and Stephen Roper from Warwick Business School to speak about on place-based policy and how UK innovation support remains strongly centralised. Based on recent ERC research we explore the value of place-based (local district council) and micro-geographic (lower super output area) perspectives for understanding innovation activity in England. Combining insights from both perspectives suggests the value of re-considering whether current place-based policy prescriptions are appropriate, or whether an even more granular approach reflecting neighbourhood characteristics is more helpful.

This seminar will be held virtually. If you would like to attend, please email
