Knowledge Quarter partners, supporters and staff met at Wellcome Collection to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Knowledge Quarter, launching its 2015 annual review and announcing our KQ Apprenticeship scheme in partnership with Camden Council – a Life Sciences apprenticeship programme developed with world leading organisations such as The Francis Crick Institute, Health Services Laboratories and the London Bioscience Innovation Centre.
The Knowledge Quarter is now a network of 59 academic, cultural, research, scientific and media organisations situated within a one mile radius of Kings Cross, who all have within their purpose the creation and dissemination of knowledge. Collectively we represent one on the greatest knowledge clusters anywhere in the world.
The Knowledge Quarter has had a hugely successful year, testament to the continued commitment and support of all our partners. Since our initial launch we’ve welcomed a further 24 organisations, cumulatively delivered 27 events to 25,000 attendees and highlighted the vital role our partners play in the local community and for London’s knowledge economy.
