Executive summary

This decision requests approval to spend up to a maximum of £100,000 to commission an evidenced based understanding of the size, make-up and dynamics of London’s science and technology sectors. The analysis will feed into policy development led by the London Enterprise Panel in working to maximise their economic contribution, and the inward investment activities of London & Partners; forming a nuanced understanding of London’s offer to global and domestic investors, potential collaborators, foot loose talent and entrepreneurs.
