The Norwich Research Park is a business community of research organisations with world-leading science credentials and over thirty science and technology based businesses.
Norwich Research Park is a partnership between the University of East Anglia, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, four independent world-renowned research institutes namely the John Innes Centre, Institute of Food Research and The Genome Analysis Centre (all strategically funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC)) and The Sainsbury Laboratory linked to the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. The BBSRC is itself a partner as is the John Innes Foundation. The Park is managed by Norwich Research Partners LLP.
The main strength of Norwich Research Park is the concentration of world-leading scientists coupled with the capability for multidisciplinary research. We continue to build on this by attracting new partners and innovative businesses to the Park to collaborate in our research and to develop our vision.
The vision of the Norwich Research Park partners and local government stakeholders is to develop a thriving science and innovation business park over the next decade by supporting spin-out and start up companies and through attracting inward investment from large corporate organisations involved in science and technology.
The Norwich Research Park is home to around 30 science and IT based businesses. With over 11,000 people including 2,700 scientists and an annual research spend of over £100 million, the Norwich Research Park is Europe’s leading centre for research in Food, Health and the Environment. The companies are located either in the Norwich BioIncubator, the Norwich Research Park Innovation Centre or hosted by one of the Park member organisations.
In 2011, the Government awarded BBSRC £26M to invest in Norwich Research Park to deliver innovation from the research base and generate economic growth and job creation. The investment will help to create and support new companies and jobs based on world-leading bioscience.
Norwich Research Park is set in over 160 hectares of parkland on the outskirts of East Anglia's historic market city with 50 ha earmarked by South Norfolk Council for further development. In total, there are over 100,000 sq m of laboratory space, with over 6,000 sq m of conventional and containment glasshouses and nearly 200 sq m of controlled environment suites.
