INTER-CEP Symposium Series

Regeneration: Is Innovation the Real Planning Gain?


On 29 March 2017, INTER-CEP will host its first symposium of 2017 bringing together leading thinkers from across the UK to discuss the role of entrepreneurship and the knowledge economy in urban regeneration.

Across the UK, major developments from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Old Oak Common and regional initiatives under the Northern Powerhouse programmes are placing knowledge-based innovation at the heart of planned regeneration efforts.

The hope is that these initiatives will spur regional and national growth, whilst providing added benefits to communities. But how much do we really know about whether these plans will work and whether much-needed innovation will follow?




Agenda


In this symposium we will bring together leading academics, public servants and private sector practitioners to ask:

  • Do we understand what works, what doesn’t and why?

  • Are we getting value for money?

  • What new innovation space models are emerging?

  • Are we learning from past activities?

  • How do different innovation spaces compete and compare?

  • What should the role of the public sector be in developing new spaces?

  • Where is the private sector more effective?
