New Report published today.

Firms’ ability to innovate successfully plays an important role in their ability to sustain growth and competitiveness. This report provides innovation benchmarks for local areas in England, updating our previous analysis published in 2015.

The benchmarks are based on a new analysis of data from the 14,000 firms which responded to the UK Innovation Survey 2015. The analysis is designed to provide representative results for each local economic area. Information is provided on ten benchmarks including new indicators for organisational innovation.
