Regional development strategies
▷ Brexit, the Green Transition, Covid-19 and related recovery spending will have a significant impact on regional development across Europe.
▷ Given their distinct industrial organisation and historical path-dependencies, the nature of the new challenges and opportunities will differ between regions.
Important topics for political economic actors include:
Existing and potential future regional comparative advantages and related challenges
Institutional structures that produce public goods, such as vocational education systems and inter-firm cooperation networks
Industrial strategy and transformation management
Strategies for regional economic prosperity, decent work and opportunities for all create political stability and have always been at the centre of our work.
Our insights here are particularly relevant to (regional) governments and interest groups, firms operating in local networks as well as strategic investors.
