The indicators are wide-ranging and capture various dimensions of R&D ecosystems including public R&D, knowledge exchange and university commercialisation, private R&D and places attracting R&D firms and workers. With this tool users can access, visualise and explore the indicators, using it as a foundation for further analysis - with the goal of informing policies to drive R&D, innovation and growth across all of the UK.
All this work has been performed with support from BEIS.
Our indicators are arranged in four broad categories.
Measuring the quantity and excellence of R&D activity taking place in higher education institutions in a region.
Knowledge exchange and university commercialisation
Measuring the connectivity between higher education institutions in a region and the wider economy.
Measuring the level of R&D activity and innovative outputs in the private sector in a region.
Places attracting R&D firms and workers
Measuring wider infrastructures and framework conditions in a region that might drive - or hinder - its innovative performance.
