Rural enterprise zones to rural investment zones?: ‘What works’ for rural enterprise


The research project explores how ‘investment zone’ approaches in England will help to meet the needs of rural enterprise. Through evaluating research findings focused around enterprise zones previously established in rural areas, the research will consider key questions around the visioning of future rural growth and the extent to which this may be achieved via new policy approaches being taken forward by the UK Government.

The research is being funded through NICRE’s Research and Innovation Fund.
