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. It is one of only four University Enterprise Zones (UEZs) in the country and is putting sensor technology on the map in the UK and around the world.
Officially opened in November 2017, Sensor City is a global innovation hub which offers start-ups and existing companies the technical expertise, business support and international platform needed to collaborate, fund and promote sensor solutions and Internet of Things (IoT) to a global market.
Light Night will provide visitors with the opportunity to see first-hand how Sensor City is helping partners to capitalise on the growing sensor revolution and to hear directly from SMEs who have been able to develop concepts into prototypes with speed and accuracy.
There will be lots of equipment on show including 3D printers, infrared and high speed cameras, microscopes and Virtual Reality headsets. Sensor City will also be showcasing the latest technological innovations that its engineering team, University partners and SME community are developing.
Take part in sensor-based games, watch live theatrical performances, and enjoy a drink while admiring the illuminated Liverpool skyline from the top floor, panoramic roof terrace.
