What a way to round up another fantastic London Tech Week. Last week we hosted London Future: Tech, Creative Arts and Innovation on the Olympic Park. We brought the industry together to examine growth opportunity for companies combining digital innovation with creative arts, and provide a platform to the leading experts, pioneers and creatives at the forefront of this movement.
It was a great opportunity to formally launch SHIFT – the new innovation district on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. SHIFT will be London’s living testbed for creating better urban futures. With a mission to solve some of the pressing issues in modern city living, it will drive inclusive innovation in climate adaptation and resilience, health and wellbeing and advanced mobility solutions. The district will bring significant economic value to the area and will drive further job creation in the region.
