Newly built, Porton Science Park (PSP) is a brand new and exciting state-of-the-art facility located over 10 hectares at the Porton Down Science Campus by the village of Porton near Salisbury in south Wiltshire.
PSP is situated alongside established R&D institutions including the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and Public Health England (PHE) Porton.
With its opening in January 2018, PSP is operated by Wiltshire Council and the facility provides opportunities for sharing innovation, expertise and research in the Life Sciences and Defence Technology sectors for businesses based at the science park and partner organisations in wider Wiltshire.
PSP offers a variety of tenancy options for Health and Life Sciences related start ups, companies and organisations to suit for size – from short-term hot desks to highly specified, office suites and fully-fitted laboratory spaces for short and long term lease. PSP is also a prime and secure location for office space, meeting room hire and hot desks in the Salisbury area.
Tenant businesses and co-workers at PSP also benefit from the use of a welcoming and substantial, ground floor reception which is also available for event hire, informal meetings and as a break out area.
A Hub For
Now operational, PSP is geared to play a critical role in achieving Wiltshire Council and Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s (SWLEP) vision for the Life Sciences and Defence Technology sectors in the county and it is spearheaded by a long-term strategy to become a world-class cluster for expertise and life sciences activity in the United Kingdom.
This strategy is also aligned with the growing Army presence and investment in defence technologies in south Wiltshire and particularly with the return of Army personnel from Germany as part of the Army Basing Programme and the new investment between Dstl and Qinetiq at Boscombe Down and in proximity of PSP.
