Following ‘Knowledge Networks: London and the Ox-Cam Arc’, NLA launches ‘Innovation Districts: Designing Inclusive Places’, a research report that provides an update on a sector that is driving the evolution of innovation districts models across London, the Golden Triangle and the wider UK towards inclusive places for innovation.
How are today’s innovation districts encouraging upskilling? How can we strike a balance and enable cross-collaboration? Can innovation districts champion diversity, sustainability and inclusivity?
Drawing from case studies across the UK, the report will examine the role of design, placemaking and public realm in the planning, delivery and management of innovation districts.
