Discussions on R&D spending need to move beyond geographic imbalances in public funding if they are to help policy makers encourage innovation in other parts of the country.
Government R&D investment should recognise the link between a place's innovative businesses and its broader economic success.
New research finds that cities with a combination of both scientific and creative industries are often the most innovative.
