The Knowledge Quarter features in a jointly written article by George Osborne and Boris Johnson published at the end of February in the Evening Standard. Together they outline a Long Term Economic Plan for London – a six-point strategy for London’s prosperity.
Jointly they state “We’ve already invested in making London a world science centre. We’re building the Francis Crick Institute for biomedical research, and the “knowledge quarter” that is growing around it at St Pancras will soon see Google move in. We are creating at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park a world-class centre of learning and culture, Olympicopolis, with UCL, the V&A museum and Sadler’s Wells all opening new facilities.”
