This project involves researchers working with places to better understand how they can improve productivity, along with their economic and social conditions with the aim of becoming more prosperous. The project aims to work with stakeholders in places across the UK to help develop a broad-based investment strategy which will allow these places to improve the productive use of their resources. The project team will be working closely with The Productivity Institute’s eight Regional Productivity Forums (RPFs) to identify potential places and partners across the UK and will continue to work with them for the duration of the project.
