Workshops explore how to maintain growth of the region's life sciences cluster

To maintain the scale and effectiveness of Cambridgeshire as a globally leading life sciences cluster, Cambridge University Health Partners (CUHP) and the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) are bringing together representatives across the cluster to identify, coordinate, and progress a programme of specific development initiatives to support the sustained growth of the sector.

Initially,  a series of workshops will focus on ‘Place’; the physical infrastructure and connections required to support the life sciences ecosystem, incorporating themes including:

  •     Flexible space to accommodate business needs at different stages

  •     Priority developments to support different types of research and collaborations

  •     Fit-for-the-future healthcare facilities which support innovative models of care

  •     Effective and sustainable long term transport solutions

  •     Infrastructure to support productive and liveable communities.

Three identical workshops in the New Year will take place with key stakeholders to test place-based hypotheses.
