Event description

Description

The new North East Cambridge District comprises an area of over 160 hectares and includes the land between Cambridge North train station and Cambridge Science Park.

The vision is that: ‘North East Cambridge will be a socially and economically inclusive, thriving, and low-carbon place for innovative living and working; inherently walkable where everything is on your doorstep.’

The opportunity is to transform the area into an innovation district of Cambridge and a showcase for new ideas in smart living. Join us on the day for this exploratory event, brokered by Cambridge Cleantech and Smart Cambridge, to discuss; what our ambitions and objectives could be, what obstacles there might be and to express your own views, ideas and suggestions.
