No one has been unaffected by the Covid-19 pandemic and we know the short-term economic consequences have been significant. As we transition from responding to the crisis to preparing for a ‘new normal’ there are many challenges, and opportunities, for small businesses and policy makers to navigate.

As the UK’s leading research centre on small business and enterprise, we’ll be working closely with partners to help shape the right policies to enable the economy to move towards recovery. Our Covid-19 Resource Directory brings together all our research on issues such as innovation, productivity, job creation and business support, that will be vital for shaping future growth.
