Event description

Description

The Knowledge Quarter is delighted to invite you to a breakfast launch of its new report: Unlocking Knowledge - Connections and Trust Within the Knowledge Quarter.

The report, authored by a City PhD student and a student working for a start-up within the KQ, is the product of a six-month study exploring the value of networks within the Knowledge Quarter. It combines desk research with interviews of over 21 partners and a survey of staff members from KQ organisations.

Over tea and coffee and cookies supplied by Origin Coffee, the report's authors will present their findings. Afterwards, Joe Edwards, Public Affairs Manager for the British Museum will chair a discussion with a selection of representatives from Knowledge Quarter partner organisations to deliberate over the implications of this research on their institutions and the wider Knowledge Quarter.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Isobel Colchester, CEO, Poet in the City
  • Sarah Elie MBE, Executive Director of Somers Town Community Association
  • Dr Jim Collins, Senior Partnerships Manager (London & Policy), University College London
  • Dr Abiola Oladipo, Scientific Consultant, Bio Nano Conslting

The Knowledge Quarter would like to thank KQ partner Scriberia for their cover illustration.
