This workshop will help kick-off some of the streams of work to be undertaken by The Productivity Institute, which is a new ESRC investment across nine academic institutions in the UK.  The presentations will outline work in progress and be discussed by early career researchers.  The final session will try to draw some threads for our future work agenda as we link productivity performance to macroeconomic policies and institutions.
