Brief description

This project built on the success of the Cities Institute in developing Knowledge Transfer (KT) through collaborative/contract research to local/sub-regional economic development agencies, SME/clusters and the wider regeneration sector. It involved the following 3 aspects:

  • Development of a set of "Key Findings" reports designed to highlight the key research findings from some of our most significant projects. These will be designed for practitioners and launched at a series of thematic events run in conjunction with key economic development/regeneration networks
  • The development of our capacity to deliver online web-based surveys and manage and analyse quantitative data sets
  • The expansion of our activities into new markets - in particular the provision of research, evaluation and data analysis services for local economic development bodies.
