 International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
Ive done a substantial amount of policy work on innovation policy in the UK and led NESTAs Innovation Gap research project, working closely with Virginia Acha, who was the brains behind the final report. The Innovation Gap report integrated a lot of the research findings from the CoPS innovation centres work, as well as similar work that had been undertaken at our partner innovation centre CRIC at the University of Manchester. The main concern of the report was that many traditional indicators of innovation now fail to capture the complexity of technical change in the UK economy. As a result, public policy has become increasingly disconnected from practice. The report also highlighted the large amount of hidden innovation ongoing in the economy, building on the original work on Hidden Innovation that had been undertaken by my PhD student at the time Michael Hopkins.

My main areas of work now relate to financial innovation, and its impact on the economy. I am PI of a large three year research project that will be exploring venture capital policy, the funding and management of high impact gazelle firms, and innovation in investment banking.
