The Future of Research and Innovation in the North West

27 Jul 2020

Unattributed summary of CaSE roundtable in collaboration with the Lancaster University on Monday 6th July 2020.

This roundtable discussion with participants from across Lancaster and the North West’s diverse research and innovation community, including industry, academia and civic leaders, was convened to explore the distinctive role R&I can play in the North West to supporting prosperous communities. The strengths of Lancaster in R&I and the barriers to increasing research intensity were discussed.

This summary is not CaSE policy but will form part of our ongoing programme of work on the place agenda. CaSE are leading discussions across the UK to collect an evidence base on place-based R&I interventions and how different sectors collaborate to facilitate local economic growth. This follows on from the publication of CaSE’s report The Power of Place.
