Title Academic cited by Cummings wants to redraw map of research spending Media name/outlet Financial Times Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 27/05/20 Description The government must shift more public spending on research and development outside the south-east of England if it is to increase national productivity substantially, new research advocates.
A report from influential innovation agency Nesta says that public money is overwhelmingly spent in London and the south-east while business investment is more evenly spread across the UK. Better matching public and private investment would help level up productivity across the country and boost the economy.
