Regional Economic Growth Through Innovation Policy and Business Engagement: Evidence from Three UK City Regions.
A new report commissioned by the Innovation Caucus sheds light on the potential for regional economic growth through innovation policy and business engagement in three UK city regions: Cardiff, Glasgow, and Manchester.
The report, titled "Regional Economic Growth Through Innovation Policy and Business Engagement: Evidence from Three UK City Regions," brings together insights from interviews conducted with representatives from business, higher education, and local and national government.
The research team, which comprised of Dr Katherine Parsons (Cardiff Business School), Professor Rick Delbridge (Cardiff Business School), Professor Elvira Uyarra (Alliance Manchester Business School), Dr David Waite (University of Glasgow), Professor Robert Huggins (Cardiff University), and Professor Kevin Morgan (Cardiff University) delved into the interactions between stakeholders in designing and implementing innovation and economic growth policies in these city regions.
Despite variations in economic profiles and governance structures, the report identifies common characteristics and a shared commitment towards a more inclusive and place-based approach to innovation.
