Please join an invitation-only drinks reception to mark the end of the Liverpool City Region Innovation Investment Summit on Thursday 16th May. 

As we commemorate our 20th anniversary and celebrate our second year in Liverpool, we are eager to reflect on our collective achievements over the past two years. Your invaluable partnership has played a pivotal role in our impact within the wider innovation ecosystem of the Liverpool City Region. 

Over the past two decades, we have evolved into one of the leading influences on innovation within the UK, fostering a robust network of world-class expertise, cutting-edge technology assets, and strategic partnerships. Together, we are committed to shaping the economy of the future, committed to driving growth and resilience in the North West and Liverpool Region. 

Our evening reception will be held at the Spine Building, offering panoramic views of the city. We will be joined by partners including the University of Liverpool, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and we are excited to formalise our partnership with LYVA Labs during the event. 

LYVA Labs have made a huge impact in LCR over the last couple of years and we’ve had the pleasure of being able to support their activity in Advanced Manufacturing and Health/​Life Sciences, including the Innovate UK Microbials Accelerator. As we look to the next 20 years of regional innovation impact from CPI, it’s essential that we strengthen our relationships with organisations such as LYVA Labs, who share an ambition for a more prosperous and innovative city region. 

We hope that you can join us for this special occasion, alongside government, industry leaders, and representatives from academia.
