CASE STUDY: KNOWLEDGE QUARTER
An innovative place where world-leading academic research meets the very latest clinical technologies.
Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) is home to the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and is fast becoming one of the world’s leading innovation districts. Upon completion of its new hospitals, it will be one of the largest academic and clinical campuses in the UK.
With world-leading specialisms, such as the fight against infectious diseases, materials innovation, personalised medicine, digital health, sensor technology and sports science, KQ Liverpool has already distinguished itself from other competing cities.
There are over £1 billion of new developments already taking shape here across all aspects of the life sciences research and draws in expertise from other disciplines such as engineering, chemistry and computer science to develop the next generation of therapies, diagnostics, medical devices (particularly digital sensors) and care practices that are transforming human healthcare in the 21st Century.
“KQ Liverpool is an innovative place where world-leading academic research meets the very latest clinical technologies. Combine that with the unique cultural diversity in the area and it’s no surprise that this is a place where great discoveries are being made. Colin Sinclair, CEO, Knowledge Quarter Liverpool
