Behind-the-Scenes @ White City Campus

Wednesday 5th April 2017 @ 18:00

Professor David Gann, CBE (Vice President – Innovation, Imperial College London)

Learn more about the initial phase of London’s most ambitious Innovation District, led by Imperial College London.

At this event, we explore the science and innovative activities of the White City Campus.

White City Campus is a 25 acre campus for science and innovation where entrepreneurs are establishing new businesses and technology firms relocating, working in collaboration with some of the world’s best scientists, engineers and medics.

Close to the Hammersmith Hospital Campus it is the natural place to co-locate Imperial's multidisciplinary activity focused on health and wellbeing: the Molecular Sciences Research Hub, the MIchael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub, and the Translation and Innovation Hub.

The timetable for this Behind-the-scenes is as follows:
