The theory of knowledge spillovers, based on the knowledge production function for innovative activity, suggests that geographic proximity matters the most where tacit knowledge plays an important role in the generation of innovative by: innovative clusters can drive the regional innovation capacity, and in the same way, the innovation capability of a cluster depends on the innovation infrastructure and fabric at the regional level.

The data shows different geographical clusters for each of the sectors. London comes top in the overall score and in all the categories.

However the distribution of other clusters, including many of the top 10 for each category, covers the majority of the population of the UK.

Based on research funded by the ESRC program on 'Cities: Competitiveness and Cohesion', it compares and contrasts the reasons why these sites are among the top ten innovative.

This project investigated the extent, nature and importance of technological, information and other linkages between firms themselves and between firms, research institutions and other private and public sector bodies in the Cambridge and Oxford regions and addressed the question of how far these territorial clusters reflect the core characteristics of an 'innovative milieu', that is, a form.
