Cities, Research, Urban Futures and the Political Response


Research programmes have created a major evidence base and policy proposals about cities to 2050, and have also addressed more pressing local needs around transport, skills and devolution, among other areas. What happens to this research? Critically, what happens in government and what might be done to improve the research/ policy-making process? Our panellists (Claire Craig, Mike Emmerich, Eleri Jones, Gavin Kelly and Nick Pearce) discuss.

In association with the Institute for Policy Research (University of Bath) and Innovate UK.
