Our area is home to a thriving innovation economy, boasting world-leading clusters of science and technology - and I’m on a mission to help those businesses unleash their full potential.
Earlier this year I launched our region’s Innovation Prospectus – our roadmap to turning the Liverpool City Region into the UK’s innovation hub. In it, we’ve outlined an ambitious £3bn pipeline of projects that have the potential to deliver £41.7bn to our local economy, creating more than 44,000 quality jobs.
For all the work we’re doing to catapult our area to the forefront of UK innovation, we need to ensure we’re investing in high-quality, sustainable spaces for our businesses to flourish. The Violet buildings are befitting of a modern, forward-looking city region like ours – and I can’t wait to see where its new tenants will take us on our journey to realising that ambition.
