Project Description

The proposed research aims to inform public policy concerning the role governments can play in fostering innovation in commercial enterprises. As part of the plan for post-Brexit Britain, the UK Government has spearheaded a new “modern industrial strategy” and published a Green Paper, Building our Industrial Strategy. At its core, the government wants to understand what role it should play in fostering innovation in commercial enterprises and how to help them develop into the next Arm Holdings. Four decades of laissez faire economics means that there is very limited data on industrial strategies in the UK. China on the other hand is a treasure trove of information. Previous research on this topic has been limited and the existing work does not differentiate between industries. By looking within specific industries, we can compare like with like thus yielding results that are more accurate. Our research will focus on the data rich manufacturing and technology sectors to determine the magnitude and effectiveness of innovation between state owned enterprise and private enterprises.
