Leading science park owners and developers have contributed to our previous discussions on the challenges for knowledge clusters, and how best to integrate new R&D centres and jobs with affordable housing, social and cultural facilities and sustainable transport for host cities and new settlements. Future Cities Forum's December discussion will be the first of a series comparing the investment, planning and design approaches across Scandinavia and Northern Europe with the best in the UK.
