A7 – Sensor City

Backed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Sensor City is a joint venture between The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University, and is one of only four University Enterprise Zones (UEZs) in the country. 

Located at the gateway to Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, the purpose-built innovation hub enables businesses to develop, fund and promote sensor solutions and IoT to a global market. 

Positioned at the intersection of industry and academia, Sensor City facilitates connectivity and fosters progress, helping partners to capitalise on the growing sensor revolution, and develop concepts into prototypes with speed and accuracy. 

Since opening its doors in July 2017, Sensor City has been providing budding entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies with specialist facilities, equipment and expert engineering input that are transferable across a wide range of sectors. 

The global hub houses over £1m of state-of-the-art equipment in purpose-built laboratories, which are some of the most sophisticated for sensor and IoT technology in the UK. 

The innovation centre is also home to a range of high quality office, hot desk and event spaces. The third-floor conference suite caters for up to 70 delegates and boasts an outdoor panoramic roof terrace, offering views across the world-famous Liverpool skyline. 

Sensor City has also developed a thriving, collaborative and specialist community. By providing access to peers, academics and professional services, companies engaged with Sensor City can turn their innovative sensor concepts into commercially viable solutions at pace.
