Innovation workshop

To address the challenges and opportunities of the age  – inequality, the climate emergency, opportunities for all, social inclusion, health and care, housing, liveability, growth – cities must continually reinvent themselves and find new solutions. The range and diversity of the Key Cities group make it ideally placed to initiate and promote agile and scalable innovation.

Research and innovation are central to the work of Key Cities to develop effective, evidence-based policies. Our Innovation Network, coordinated by the Key Cities APPG, brings together city leaders, local stakeholders and universities – including Bath, Bradford, Coventry, East Anglia, Lancaster, Lincoln, Plymouth, Salford, South Wales, Southampton, Staffordshire, Sunderland and Wrexham – to develop novel solutions and ensure a strategic approach to innovation.
