Policymakers from across the political spectrum are committed to reducing regional inequalities and spending more on research and development. But there is a lack of detail as well as no consensus on how to deliver on these two priorities. There is also some confusion over how R&D policy and regional policy should relate to one another in the future.

This paper, produced in conjunction with GatenbySanderson, makes firm proposals on how to implement a new approach that are rooted in three successful case studies from around the world – in the UK (Lincoln), the US (San Diego) and Sweden (Värmland).
