Knowledge hub

Knowledge Hub

Pioneering master-plan aiming to transform the way people think about, create and develop public spaces. The way people use spaces to power collaborative thinking, connecting deep science with start-up energy and focus, will harness existing urban spaces with newly designed areas creating a cohesive campus concept. To this end, K-Hub will be a beacon of new place-based innovation, leveraging the benefits delivered by the HS2 Growth Strategy, Industrial Strategy and Big City Plan to drive economic growth. This will be facilitated through targeted intervention packages and by linking innovations to overseas markets and investors. Covering both Birmingham and 
the wider West Midlands region, K-Hub will capitalise on investment, supporting the development of a rich innovation environment. Practically, the initiative will help develop new products/services, create jobs, grow business opportunity, increase productivity, and foster vital research. K-Hub is led by Birmingham City University and underpinned by a network of partners, including Aston University, Birmingham City Council, BMet, Innovation Birmingham, HS2, Phillips Lighting, BOA and HS2 College, amongst others.
