This free NLA breakfast talk launched a GVA report into London’s knowledge economy and heard from key speakers on how London’s built environment is contributing to this sector’s success.

London is now a global leader for the knowledge economy, which covers medical and life sciences, creative industries, media and technology. It has been well documented that this sector has greatly helped pull London, and the rest of the UK, out of the recession. But is London’s economy balanced enough today? How does London stay at the top as a place for those contributing to the knowledge economy to come and work, and how can London’s property sector nurture this? Is London doing enough to build the relationship between science, technology, education and business to spur the sector on?
