Top researchers keep Norwich in the top 10 cities in the UK
It has been a successful start to 2018 for Norwich Research Park, now home to more than 80 businesses, with one or more joining each month. This success is planned to continue with a number of exciting new Park developments this year.
A nursery school will open in February contributing to the supportive environment on offer by providing easy access to childcare.
The new multi-million-pound Quadram Institute is a pioneering new facility for food and health research and will open in mid-2018. It will bring together research teams from Quadram Institute Bioscience, the University of East Anglia and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, including the regional gastrointestinal endoscopy unit.
The Quadram Institute is complemented by the unique world-class bioscience cluster based at the Park, including plant and microbial science at the John Innes Centre and computational science and sequencing expertise at the Earlham Institute.
Recent statistics show that the Park has seven researchers in the premier 1pc of the world’s ‘Most Highly Cited Researchers’ putting Norwich in the top 10 cities in the UK. This demonstrates the research strength and outstanding achievements of the Norwich Research Park partner organisations.
A truly networked location, Norwich Research Park is the ideal location for innovative businesses to thrive with shared office and laboratory space, office and laboratory units from 13 sq m, access to equipment, business support and serviced plots for development.
