The KQ Vision

About Knowledge Quarter Liverpool

KQ Liverpool is a 450-acre urban innovation district and is home to some of the world’s most influential players in science, health, technology, education, music and the creative and performing arts.

With over £1bn of new developments currently underway – and a further £1bn in the pipeline – we plan to increase the city’s employment figures, improve graduate retention and attraction rates and establish Liverpool at the forefront of the Northern Powerhouse.

The unique mix of science, medicine and culture, combined with KQ Liverpool’s stunning architecture and its position at the heart of the city, has already attracted the Royal College of Physicians who have chosen KQ Liverpool as the home for their new Northern Centre of Excellence.


The KQ Liverpool team is tasked with defining, creating and promoting the place and occupies the dynamic space between ambition and delivery. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which is why we bring together the city’s key partners to collaborate in a creative environment, allowing us to not only discover and present opportunities but to respond to them quickly.

We provide consistent messaging, a single point of contact for investors and businesses and through the ‘power of place’ foster clustering, networking and knowledge transfer.

KQ Liverpool is fully supported by all of its partners: Liverpool City Council, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, The University of Liverpool and The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, The Visit Hope Street Community Interest Company and Liverpool Vision.
