These over-arching sector indicators are taken from the groupings used in our publication, Mapping England’s Innovation Activity.

These indicators are compiled using a fusion of quantitative and expert-driven data, that makes it possible to compare place-based innovation activity in the manner displayed to the right.

Hub framework innovation strengths

The indicators below are compiled from the Hub’s data framework, which measures innovation involves using a range of indicators to capture the series of inputs (e.g. funding and human capital) and outputs (e.g. knowledge outputs from research, innovative products, services, and processes) that encompass the innovation process, and the interactions between them.

We have then identified the key sectoral strengths from these indicators and displayed them below. Key sectoral strengths in innovative can be identified across research, business, and research-business collaboration in the table below. Sectoral strengths that occur across these categories are positioned next to one another:
