The Knowledge Quarter’s The Future of Knowledge: Think Better. Think Together. conference returns on Wednesday 26th June 2019 at the British Library.

The programme includes:

  • Keynote addresses from British space scientist and BBC’s The Sky at Night presenter Maggie Aderin-Pocock, and tech writer Clive Thompson.
  • Panel discussions with participants including Guardian journalist Luke Harding; University of Oxford Professor of Theoretical Epidemiology and novelist Dr Sunetra Gupta.

The KQ is determined to be at the forefront of a necessary transformation, where innovative collaboration brings about positive change. We aim to be a catalyst for vital interactions and deeper synergy, fostering an atmosphere of trust and transparency by providing an open platform for meaningful communication between our partner organisations. Together we can work on the future of knowledge, break down the dividing walls, and make knowledge a vital force in tackling the challenges of a networked yet divided world.
