Investment Opportunities at Porton Science Park Incubator Centre
The brand new Porton Science Park (PSP) is a unique opportunity where the state-of-the art, 10 hectare life sciences research and development campus benefits from close links with:
Public Health England (PHE) Porton Down – world leaders in high quality microbiological research and testing
Ministry of Defence’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) – specialises in development of effective countermeasures against chemical and biological events
Porton Biopharma Ltd – established in 2015 to commercialise the pharmaceutical development and manufacturing capabilities at Porton Down.
PSP development progresses with Phase One opening in January 2018.
Phase One aims is to support the growth of innovative, sustainable businesses by providing quality lab, and office workspace for companies involved in life sciences R&D related activities and support services that will benefit both the business and research communities.
Phase One includes 4,084m2 of incubation and innovation space with further grow-on space for companies at more advanced stages of development.
