London’s Knowledge Clusters: From Emerging to Maturing


Read London Property Alliance’s new research on the growth of life science districts across London.

Following our 2018 report about the emergence of ‘Knowledge Clusters’ in the capital, this timely update explores the emergence of new hubs for science and innovation – and the progress made in locations such as King’s Cross / Euston and White City, as established centres of excellence with world-class research and associated work space.

The research features interviews and case studies with leading life science occupiers, real estate developers, as well as politicians and policymakers from local, London and national government. It sets out what is needed from various stakeholders in order for London – within the ‘Golden Triangle’ offer – to compete on the global stage for creating, growing and retaining the innovative health and science businesses of the future, fulfilling its potential as a life sciences superpower.

The sponsors of this research are Charles Russell Speechlys (headline sponsor), British LandDerwent London, Gerald Eve, Howard de Walden Estate, King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership, Landsec, Precis Advisory and Stanhope/Mitsui Fudosan.
