Knowledge Networks: London and the Ox-Cam Arc


Tuesday 16 June 2020
10:00 - 11:00

Hear from industry leaders about how to future-proof the needs for the knowledge economy sector within the Golden Triangle
NLA launches Knowledge Networks, a research paper examining the needs for futureproofing the knowledge economy in Oxford, Cambridge and London, the so-called Golden Tringle. Today, as we face an unprecedented crisis brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the knowledge economy sector is more critical than ever, demonstrated by region’s response to the crisis, strengths in life sciences and by the remarkable speed of innovation and collaboration emerged in. 
What can we do to future-proof the region to future shocks? How might COVID-19 impact the education, science and healthcare sectors in the short to medium term? And what longer term implications may we see in the way we plan, design and build for these sectors? 
In this talk, we will hear from industry leaders about how to future-proof the needs for the knowledge economy sector within the Golden Triangle.
