Leeds City Region Strategy

Leeds City Region Strategy

The Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership asked us to develop a Smart Specialisation Strategy. We engaged in extensive data analysis on innovation performance, mapping of innovation assets in the higher education and business sectors and assessed local innovation services on the ground.

Our team did some international comparative reviews of successful innovation cities and consulted widely with local businesses and innovation leaders using workshops and a twitter sentiment analysis.

The final strategy has been used by the LCR LEP to inform their Strategic Economic Plan for the wider development of their Leeds City Region economy and will provide a template for investment planning over the next 5-10 years.
