What I do
Juan is a Research Fellow in Economics in the Creative Economy team for Policy and Research.
He is interested in how new production and distribution tools, social media and widespread data access are transforming innovation and learning in organisations, communities, industries and society.
He is working on a programme of research around the impacts of big data and analytics on innovation and growth, and what they mean for policy and practice.
Previously, Juan worked on Next Gen, an independent review to transform the UK into the best global source of talent for the video games and visual effects industries, A Manifesto for the Creative Economy, which proposed a plan to help the UK creative economy remain a global leader in digitised creative markets, and Creative Clusters and Innovation, which created the first geography of the British creative industries.
