Our Science

A New Planet_Norwich Research Park Image LibraryNorwich Research Park is one of the largest single-site concentrations of research in food, genomics and health in Europe, the Park has world-leading credentials. We bring together four independent internationally-renowned research institutes: John Innes Centre, Quadram Institute, Earlham Institute and The Sainsbury Laboratory; with University of East Anglia (UEA) and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH), supported and funded by The John Innes Foundation and UKRI Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). Together we create a community of people, place and resources that stimulates ideas and delivers innovation to change lives and rethink society

Norwich Research Park is now home to 150 businesses. A number of these were borne out of research developed at the world-leading institutes located at the Park. These companies have achieved success by translating concepts developed through science research into viable commercial propositions. The continued success of businesses operating from the Park demonstrates just what fertile environment it offers to those with growth ambitions.

The Power of Collaboration

Having the unique mix of four world-leading research institutes, a university and a university hospital on the same site, as well as over a hundred and fifty businesses has provided the opportunity for collaboration to be a part of the DNA  of our Park.

It’s not that collaboration can happen. It means it does happen naturally. The physical cluster of so many like-minded people with such a diversity of skills makes working together inevitable. Relationships are formed and nurtured for long-term projects. This has been the foundation that helped to create a community of people who do not acknowledge physical barriers marked by buildings.

COVID19 Image


Since the pandemic started many months ago the Norwich Research Park community has been taking action to help support others and improve understanding of the virus. Take a look at our publication 'The COVID-19 Challenge: Moving Forward Together' that shows our journey and how we've responded to help people understand the science behind the virus and also support people to get through these difficult times. This animation also gives you an overview of the work we are doing to fight COVID19.

Our People

Take a look at the Norwich Research Park Yearbook - a collection of articles from the past year that spotlights scientists across the Park that are performing scientific research that will change people's lives. From volcanoes, creepy crawlies and climate change, to how we've been assisting with Covid-19 efforts, this yearbook is a great way to catch up on the big things going on here in the past year and meet some of our science community.
