Working with SQW, a major UK consultant providing research, analysis and advice on economic and social development, BMG Research undertook a survey on behalf of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The need to rebalance the UK economy, underpinned by international competitiveness and export-driven growth, places innovation at the heart of the economic growth agenda. The LEP wished to undertake a survey to explore innovation to inform the development of services to support local businesses. The LEP wanted to explore what the key innovation priorities should be for the City Region over the next 15 years. 61 telephone interviews were undertaken among businesses involved in innovative activities in the Liverpool City Region in July 2013.
