The Innovation Forum launches its branch in the most dynamic academic and economic region in the UK outside the Golden Triangle (Cambridge-London-Oxford). Our aim is to promote inter-generational knowledge and leadership exchange in the North West.

Manchester is currently home to some of the biggest universities in the UK. The Oxford Corridor is a unique business location, at the heart of Manchester’s knowledge economy, covering some 243 hectares with a 55,000 strong workforce. It is home to two of the UK’s leading universities The University of Manchester, and Manchester Metropolitan University, and The Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – making the Corridor not only the largest academic campus in the UK but also the largest clinical academic campus in Europe.

With the support of our Partners and Sponsors, Innovation Forum Manchester will:

  • Facilitate the interaction of local talents with academic and industry senior leaders, promoting inter-generational knowledge exchange.
  • Support the implementation of novel and innovative ways into the current academic system, empowering the use of alternative communication strategies towards the knowledgeable community.
  • Promote the region’s potential and possibilities for the creation of innovative and disruptive technologies, attracting investment and allowing Greater Manchester to show how much it can offer.
