London and the South Forum

The London and the South Forum is led by the King’s College London. It is involved in the implementation of research insights, the design of practical business and policy interventions, and in providing input to the development of the Institute’s future research agenda.

The Productivity Agenda

The Productivity Agenda is a blueprint for boosting the UK’s productivity. With 10 chapters written by experts on productivity, it highlights key areas of policy for leaders to focus on so the public, private and civic sectors can be better equipped to translate productivity gains into improved living standards and well-being across the UK.
