A space to innovate, collaborate and inspire

Innovation Space

Sensor City is open for business and our 2,500m2 purpose-built city centre hub allows us to offer our community the technical expertise, business support and physical space they have told us they need.

Based within the Copperas Hill redevelopment zone and at the heart of Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, the building is home to a vibrant, high-tech community, working locally in partnership with the two universities and Liverpool City Region’s Local Enterprise Partnership, and key partners nationally and internationally.

The building’s state-of-the-art facilities, business support and spaces (see below) is available both to companies who are Sensor City residents and also to the wider sensor community.
