    Description of Activity

    Co-produced research with the Scottish Cities Alliance (comprising Scottish Government, Aberdeen City Council, Dundee City Council, City of Edinburgh Council, Glasgow City Council, Highland Council, Perth & Kinross Council, Stirling Council) on what policies influence how socially inclusive economic growth is, including how 'inclusive growth' can be measured. The co-production took place between early 2015 and mid-2017, consisting of dialogue over the scope of the research aims, composition of three expert workshops (conducted in the Spring of 2016) and synthesis of policy recommendations. Findings and policy recommendations were presented to the Scottish Cities Alliance Leadership Group (comprising political leaders of the relevant local authorities and the Scottish Government Minister for Cities & Infrastructure) in February 2017 and again (to new leaders following local elections in May 2017) in September 2017.
