Benchmarking local innovation – the innovation geography of the UK

Benchmarking local innovation – the innovation geography of the UK is the first ever study mapping where firms developing new British goods and services are concentrated. The UK has an ‘arc of innovation’ stretching from Cambridge through the South-East Midlands and along the M4 corridor.
Key nodes of the arc of innovation include well-known university spin-off centres Oxford and Cambridge, as well as more surprising areas like Gloucestershire and Milton Keynes.
