LYVA Labs help deliver against the Innovation Prospectus

Liverpool City Region (LCR) has set itself some ambitious targets for research and development (R&D) spending by 2030 – 5% gross value added (GVA), which is double the UK target.

Far from being an aspiration, with little chance of realisation, this forecast is based on an existing £3bn pipeline of projects and a growing cluster of health and life sciences/infection control, advanced manufacturing/ materials chemistry, emerging technologies, and net zero/ smart city innovations in the city region. 1

LCR also has a strong network of science, innovation, and industrial assets, of national and global importance: Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and iiCON; the University of Liverpool’s Materials Innovation Factory; Hartree National Centre for Digital Innovation; Daresbury Science and Technology Park; and Glass Futures, in St Helens.
