Commissioned in anticipation of the levelling-up White Paper, this study presents a synthesis of evidence from literature review and case-based primary research.
It explores how and why the characteristics of areas affect the success of UK Research and Innovation’s (UKRI) R&I ‘levers’ in generating place-based outcomes, and vice versa, and what might be done to help investment in R&I contribute to better place-based outcomes.
The output from this study includes a series of specific considerations for UKRI and wider policy, alongside useful frameworks and concepts to assist thinking, discussions, and decisions about the implications of place on R&I support, and vice versa.
