The White City Innovation District: at the heart of an inclusive economic ecosystem

Join Councillor Stephen Cowan, Leader of the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, as he talks through the genesis and development of the White City Innovation District as an exemplar of strong partnership working between local government, academia and business. The Borough’s pioneering Industrial Strategy is built on transforming Imperial College London’s strengths in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine into start-up and scale-up businesses while also attracting anchor corporations in those sectors and building on the Borough’s heritage as an arts and media centre. Central to the partnership approach is a focus on ensuring a truly joint endeavour to ensure everyone benefits from the economic growth generated.
