Technology and innovation are important drivers of productivity improvements and growth. Whether it is companies, regions or nations, they will need to harness technology to pull ahead. But doing so requires informed strategies. We have advised a range of stakeholders on the policies and practices that encourage and reward technological progress and innovation-driven models of growth. We frequently assess the impact that technology and innovation have on the economy, the workforce and wider society.
We have worked in many areas that are critical to understanding technology and innovation. These include investment in digital infrastructure and skills, public support of innovation and research and development, the impact of emerging technologies on productivity and growth, the institutional impediments to technological diffusion, and the economic implications of general purpose technologies, to name a few. We understand the drivers of progress – historically and today.
Our clients span the public, private, and non-profit sectors, representing key areas in technology and innovation that include: biotechnology, renewable energy, e-commerce, venture capital, innovation-driven SMEs, research and development, information and communications, and emerging digital technologies.
We provide our clients with a wide range of services, such as economic research and modelling, policy analysis and programme evaluation, cost-benefit analysis, framework development, econometric and statistical analysis, case studies, and strategic advice. Our work has been used at the highest levels of government and business.
