National Productivity Week 27th November 2023 | Visit Website

A diverse community of
leading experts, policymakers
and practitioners

The Institute’s key research themes
are led by ten academic partners
spread across the UK.

We’re a UK-wide research
organisation exploring what
productivity means for business

Businesses are crucial to solving
the UK’s productivity problems.




Coming decades will see major transitions as the UK adopts new technologies and responds to climate change. There are both opportunities and risks for productivity, jobs and the distribution of the gains emerging from digital transformation and green growth. These transitions will require transformative changes in business models, skills needs, infrastructure, regulatory policies and markets.
