Leeds has always been a cradle of innovation
We’re a centre for world-class research, with renowned universities and further education colleges. Skills learnt in those institutions drive entrepreneurship and enterprise, attracting talent from around the globe to our broad-based economy.
We’re constantly strengthening those international links, encouraging trade and investment focused on our thriving healthcare, creative and digital sectors, as well as forging partnerships between our universities and business. Through the Eurocities network, we’re sharing best practice, adapting to the digitalisation, and addressing the challenges of COVID-19.
