Sensor City wins ‘Knowledge Business of the Year’
The Sensor City team had reason to celebrate again last night, having received the ‘Knowledge Business of the Year’ award at the Regional Business Awards.
Hundreds of city leaders gathered in Liverpool Cathedral to see the Liverpool ECHO honour the best businesses and business leaders in the Liverpool City Region.
Sensor City was recognised for fostering industry–academic collaborations, bringing together knowledge and expertise in technology, supporting high-tech businesses working on sensor and IoT applications and stimulating business growth regionally, nationally and internationally.
Executive Director of Sensor City, Alison Mitchell, said: “It’s fantastic that Sensor City is being recognised as a leading knowledge asset that is truly making a difference.
“As the North West’s only specialised technical enterprise zone, we are working intelligently, creatively and collaboratively to develop a connected sensor community and are making Liverpool a global hub for sensor technologies.”
Located at the gateway to Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, Sensor City provides companies and organisations with the high-tech facilities and business support opportunity required to co-exist and grow together in a unique way.
Dr Joanne Phoenix, Business Development Manager at Sensor City added: “Our collaborative projects show the power of research, knowledge and enterprise to drive technical transformation across social, cultural and economic boundaries.”
The awards, now in their 24th year, are staged by the Liverpool ECHO and the Business Post magazine and are sponsored by Liverpool Business School at Liverpool John Moores University.
