Manchester Institute of Innovation Research,
University of Manchester
- 15+ HEIs across 3 regions (3X5)
- c. 6,000 firms across 3 regions
Number per 100 million US PPP $ research expenditures
Issue of perspective seen as a central element in this study. More specifically:
1. Economic impacts, but little on the specifics of research and innovation impacts and wider competitiveness (c.f. links)
2. What studies there have been, have focused on a limited set of direct, tangible research links (research revenue, IP income, patents, etc.) rather than more indirect, less tangible innovation impacts
3. Focus still largely on the university (supply) rather than the firm (demand); tend also to ignore co-joint developments (supply & demand nexus)
4. Although focus has been on HEIs, in relation to strategy, management and operational practices (routines) still largely treated as ‘black boxes’
5. No real attempt to see how this plays out between and within regions (systemic view)
