Levelling Up

As a phrase, “Levelling Up” risks being nebulous to the point of cloudy confusion.  Every one and every place has their strong views on what rebalancing the national economy could and should look like, but without a taut and coherent place-policy, levelling up is like candy floss without the stick.

Localis’s 2021 Levelling Up workstream will decode the levelling up language and narrative to investigate the best routes to place prosperity and pandemic recovery:

  • An innovation-led ecosystem for local growth and research and development.
  • The new post-COVID labour market.
  • The role of local government in economic development.
  • The health and care economy either side of next NHS reorganisation.
  • Sub-regional investment strategies and role of UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Levelling Up Fund.
