29th April, 09:30 AM, Online Event: Innovation Districts – winning cities & investment

Real Asset Live, Live Online Event: UK Timezone | 09:30 – 10:30

The Covid-19 health crisis has brought the crucial role of innovation districts into sharp focus. The crisis has created a significant challenge to cities in terms of resilience and may also lead to a re-assessment of the factors that make a winning city.

Will the role of innovation districts potentially grow in importance as investors look for longer-term investment opportunities. Human capital will remain key in terms of creating winning cities. What role do innovation districts play in attracting, nurturing and retaining talent. How you build the innovation ecosystem needed to create a sustainable, long-term investment? How to attract and harness skills and talent. How can cities encourage and benefit from innovation in terms of place-making, community and creating winning cities? What are the keys to success and will this change given the disruption – particularly in cities?
