This session was jointly hosted by the Productivity Insights Network (PIN) and the Enterprise Research Centre (ERC) to explore the different approaches and insights of productivity research on regions, sectors, supply-chains, firms and individuals. Through interdisciplinary conversations between researchers, civil servants, UKRI and business representatives, participants will help to develop an understanding of different perspectives on productivity.Conversations with partners from different sectors has highlighted an inconsistency in how productivity is understood. A universal definition of productivity is not easily applicable in practice due to its varied interpretation across sectors and scales. Measures of productivity can become confused making it difficult to gain an accurate picture about the impact on individuals, firms, sectors, supply chains and regions.

The event will take place on Tuesday 1st October 2019 in central London between 13.00 and 15.00. To confirm attendance or for enquiries about the session, please contact: productivity@sheffield.ac.uk.
