About Northernlands3

The Northernlands event returned for its third year! We were thrilled that the Embassy for The Netherlands joined us again as a partner. We also welcomed West Yorkshire Combined Authority as a new partner for this year, helping to highlight and support the innovation that happens in the region and beyond.

We had two days of fantastic speakers from across the UK and the Netherlands, covering topics from transport, health, the future of work and skills, the Climate Emergency, data rights and safety, and much much more. We were also showcasing emerging startups who are ready to make their mark and make a difference.
