Northernlands 4 was a special 2-day ONLINE event that built on the success of the previous Northernlands events whilst exploring new topics and challenges that have risen from the pandemic.


What is the economy in the North actually good at? Using the RTIC system developed by The Data City, Tom demonstrates what the North's strengths really are based on the type of businesses that are operating in the North.

Nothernlands 4 is a collaboration between Open Innovations and The Kingdom of the Netherlands, the start of activity to create, support, and amplify the cultural links between The Netherlands and the North of England. It is with their generous and vigourous support, and the support of other energetic organisations, that Northernlands can be delivered.
