Over time we have built up an archive of useful research, publications and media articles – some our own and some from third parties – that serve as a useful resource for our Members, academics, business and other bodies and people interested in the future of Cambridge. Please feel free to explore below.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Independent Economic Review (CPIER) has today published its interim report, which has been developed by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Independent Economic Commission (CPIEC).
This comprehensive publication tells you about the work we are currently doing as well as what we plan to do. Whether you read it cover to cover, or just dip into the parts that you find most interesting, you will see that there is a lot going on.
The supply and retention of teachers in schools has been identified as a central concern for the city and the region, particularly given that much of the economic growth in and around Cambridge is dependent on the intellectual capabilities and skill sets of its workforce.
Increasing pressure on the transport network and the stifling effect of traffic congestion is a major challenge that needs transformative solutions to maintain growth and the quality of life for those who live and work in and around the city, and beyond.
Strong demand for office and lab space in the ‘Golden Triangle’ outside of London continues to push up rents. The first half of 2017 has seen prime office and lab rents in Cambridge and Oxford surge ahead as the UK continues to refocus towards the ‘knowledge’ economy.
The title of our Spring 2015 newsletter, ‘Catalyst for Change’, could be seen as a direct reference to our role in bringing about the introduction, by Stagecoach East, of a new, anti-congestion bus service between Trumpington Park & Ride and Cambridge Railway Station from April 2015.
The Cambridge Cluster Map is a big data resource highlighting the data on the cluster of businesses located within 20 miles of Cambridge, UK. Created by Cambridge Ahead, it is a free-to-access online resource illustrating the vibrancy of the Cambridge technology and life science cluster.
