KQ Liverpool's spin-out development company, now known as Sciontec, will use the upcoming MIPIM to launch the search for a private investor to work alongside the city's council and universities as the partnership seeks new projects across the City Region.
In recent years, the benefits associated with collaborative working have become prevalent, particularly in the science and tech sectors, and we’re continuing to champion this at Sensor City, writes executive director, Alison Mitchell.
Baltic Creative Community Interest Company has acquired the 19th-century Norfolk Street warehouse from Liverpool City Council, with plans in place to fully restore the building to house 17,000 sq ft of office space.
As Government-backed research base Sensor City welcomes its first tech start-up tenants, Place North West visits the 25,000 sq ft building which is the first piece in Liverpool's university enterprise zone.
The Northern Arc proposal led by Ryder Architecture and Arup has been selected as one of ten winners in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, a competition to see where pod-based high-speed transport systems could be implemented.
Unsurprisingly, Manchester is leading the North West in the tech industry, according to the Tech Nation 2017 report published this week, with £2.9bn of digital turnover annually. But why do Reading, Bristol and Bath have much larger digital turnovers than Manchester, asks Laura Storey.
