Report launch – Innovation Hotspots: Clustering the New Economy

The launch of Centre for Cities' latest report exploring growth hotspots around the country, and their relevance for policymakers.

Event starts at 12:00 - 13:00 on 12 September 2023 at Online, via Zoom

Join Centre for Cities for the launch of our latest report exploring where innovative ‘new economy’ firms cluster around the country.

The clustering of particular sectors has long been of interest to policymakers, and has been brought into focus again with the creation of the government’s Investment Zones. But what does clustering look like across the UK, and where does it happen? This report uses fine-grained data to understand where the country’s growth hotspots are and what this means for policy.

This event will include the opportunity to ask questions via the Q&A function.
