Hackney Wick in lockdown

Based on the Olympic Park, Loughborough London is committed to developing programmes of research and investigation in collaboration with businesses in East London. Lessons learned from this research will be of local, national and international interest.

During 2020 and 2021 we conducted a research project with companies in and around Hackney Wick to understand the impact of Covid-19 on business activities. Working with the GLA, London Legacy Development Corporation, Hackney Wick CEZ and others, we observed and participated in a broad range of activities to understand the business resilience and characteristics of the creative communities in the area.

An outline of the research project and a set of resources generated during the conduct of the research is featured here.

The final report, in five sections, is here.
