Innovation is an essential – perhaps the essential – driver of firm-level competitiveness and regional economic growth. Firms succeed or fail on the basis of their ability to (1) continuously create new products and services that customers are willing to pay for, and (2) develop processes for delivering these products and services more cost-effectively. Both underpin improvements in productivity and GVA levels. But firms do not innovate in isolation. They rely on regional, national and/or international networks of partner organisations, including suppliers, contractors, universities and consultancies that provide components, technology, skills, knowledge and expertise as an input into the innovation process.

For these reasons, developing a strong regional system of innovation should be at the heart of any economic growth strategy. More so, because the benefits are realised not just by firms but more widely, through the creation of higher-value and higher-paid employment opportunities and by multiplier effects which benefit others in the region. Firms, universities and regional policymakers all have a key role to play.

Migration Advisory Committee recommends lifting the Tier 2 visa cap

The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has recommended that in the future, caps to the Tier 2 visa scheme should be abolished.

The committee, which was established to assess the impact of the European Economic Area (EEA) on the UK’s labour market, said if free movement ends once the UK leaves the European Union, rules surrounding the migration of skilled workers will likely have to cover both those from the EEA as well as outside of it, in which case the Tier 2 scheme should be adapted to make it easier for skilled talent to enter the UK.
