Brain Business Jobs in the UK: A European Benchmark

  • NatWest Entrepreneur Accelerator Regents House, 40-42 Islington High Street, London, N1 8XB United Kingdom (map)

The Entrepreneurs Network would like to invite you to a lecture on 14th August with Dr. Nima Sanandaji on Brain Business Jobs – jobs that are crucial for income and productivity growth.

Nima will present the latest findings of the Brain Business Jobs index, a detailed measure of knowledge intensive jobs concentration in 30 European countries and 180 European regions. The in-depth study, funded by Nordic Capital, finds that the UK has the most knowledge-intensive business sector among the larger European economies, yet needs a boost in knowledge jobs creation to compete at the very top with countries such as Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark.

Dr. Nima Sanandaji is the president of the think tank ECEPR and author of 30 books on entrepreneurship and policy. Klas Tikkanen, COO of Nordic Capital, will also attend to comment the study.
