Structural Transformation, Adaptability and City Economic Evolutions focuses on the role of urban areas in driving growth, particularly the potential of the northern cities to address the geographic imbalance of the British economy. The project will explore the historical development of British cities and the ways this has been determined by structural change and economic governance. The project outputs will include a range of new datasets covering key areas such as employment and productivity, as well as a series of detailed case studies.
