As part of its new vision, unveiled last autumn, Norwich Research Park is reaching out to schools and colleges around the county to introduce students to the raft of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers its institutions can help to start and progress.
David Parfrey, executive chairman of Anglia Innovation Partnership, which runs the research park, will give his first talk as part of the initiative to year 10 and 12 students at University Technical College (UTC) Norfolk on Thursday May 9.
Sharn Crane, employer engagement lead at UTC Norfolk, said: “We are very lucky to have something of the scale and importance of Norwich Research Park on our doorstep, so we are delighted that David is coming to share his enthusiasm and ambition for science-based research with our students.”
