Liverpool’s economy is the fastest growing out of all Northern Powerhouse City Regions and over the next five to seven years £2bn of investment will be pumped into redevelopment in Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool).
In an article for Future North, CEO of the Knowledge Quarter, Colin Sinclair, who has been in post for two years, reflects on the successes of the KQ Liverpool team and looks forward to future developments including Paddington Village which will become the new home for the Royal College of Physicians, the £35M Rutherford Cancer Centre and Kaplan’s new international college.
Colin says: “KQ Liverpool’s world-leading universities, its new hospitals and a progressive City Council at the heart of a joined-up City Region are proving that the power of partnership really can deliver something far greater than the sum of its parts.
“We are creating jobs, new discoveries, retaining graduates, starting and growing businesses through what we call disruptive collaboration. By that we mean never accepting the norm, acting in self-interest or being average in what we do; instead, always aiming high, being inclusive and being world-class in everything.”
Colin’s article, which appeared in Future North’s ‘Life Sciences Edition’ in The Times, can be viewed here.
