KQ Liverpool

Where great discoveries are made

 

Welcome to Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool)

Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) brings together the city’s key partners to collaborate in a creative environment and close the economic gap with London. To do this KQ Liverpool sets out to create and promote the dynamic and innovative industries operating within the Knowledge Quarter. KQ Liverpool is already home to some of the world’s most influential players in science, health, technology, culture and education and with over £1bn of new developments in the pipeline. To support the growth of new innovative businesses KQ Liverpool intends to support programmes that invest in the 54,000 students that study in the city and reposition Liverpool at the forefront of global innovation.

Knowledge Quarter Liverpool has a plan that focuses on three main areas: Making the place, Improving connectivity and Attracting investment & creating opportunities. A key part of these plans will be Paddington Village, a £1bn flagship expansion site that will house 1.8m square feet of science, technology, education and health space. With Greenwich Village in New York as inspiration, Paddington Village will be a great place to live, work and socialise. In the centre of Paddington Village will be two major educational facilities, The Royal College of Physicians and Liverpool International College, which will host over 45,000 students.
