Reports produced or commissioned as part of the Growth Commission’s work
The report (available in full here, and as an executive summary) makes the case for unleashing the potential of one of the UK’s major economic regions, the “London-Stansted-Cambridge Corridor.” It outlines a 20-year vision for the Corridor that would see it become one of the top “knowledge regions” in the world, competing alongside Silicon Valley, Boston’s high-tech / life science cluster, Greater Munich, Øresund in Scandinavia, and emerging regions in Asia.
This report was complete in January 2016 and provides presents an analysis of the London-Stansted-Cambridge Corridor economy, and the characteristics and performance of the local areas that constitute the Corridor. The report reveals that the LSC Corridor is a region of dynamic growth with an increasing global presence.
This first expert report was authored by Professor Michael Enright, the world-renowned expert on corridor economies, knowledge regions and clusters.Professor Enright’s paper offers a summary of his 30 years of experience, and directs this at the challenges facing the London-Stansted-Cambridge Corridor. He identifies a number of critical issues, and priorities for the Growth Commission to consider.
INTERNATIONAL CASE STUDIES
Through these case studies we hope to learn what might drive further growth and prosperity in the London-Stansted-Cambridge Corridor and understand what kinds of priorities and actions might be sensible to consider as a basis for collaboration going forward. A total of six case studies are planned, and the following have been completed and published to date:
