PSP’s Incubation Centre has been created with its tenants in mind – its specialist services will include access to the latest laboratory equipment, technical expertise and collaborative research between businesses and the research community whilst also encouraging active links with existing innovation networks, higher education, knowledge bases within Wiltshire and the United Kingdom.
PSP offers three dynamic capabilities, supported and strengthened by its programme partners:
A brand new 4,084m2 building that houses laboratory-based SMEs and the support to enable these businesses to grow and develop rapidly.
Dedicated grown-on space, provisioned within the new innovation centre for developed SMEs to expand their operations with more mature service and product delivery capability.
The remit also includes the future construction of additional buildings at PSP for the science park’s expansion and grow-on space for established businesses seeking direct association with Porton Down’s scientific community.
Phase one of the science park has been created with Life Sciences tenants in mind and sector services will include access to specialist equipment, technical expertise, collaborative research between businesses and the research community within Wiltshire – as well as the promotion of PSP by fostering active links with existing innovation networks within the United Kingdom, higher education, knowledge-based industries, knowledge transfer networks and through national and international collaborations.
