Some cities have become innovation districts for advanced manufacturing, combining applied research and R&D to traditional industries and carving out competitive advantages in high-tech, bespoke and complex processes.
Innovation Districts can help boost growth in cities, and cities can make the most of them by supporting existing businesses and attracting new ones, and building their strategy on strong evidence based on what advanced manufacturing companies across the whole supply chain need to grow and innovate.
