Alliances & Networks
Norwich Research Park is home to a number of networks and alliances that bring together expert researchers from different organisations across our Park community. Each of these collaborations have their own focused area of expertise and help to foster new developments in research and innovation. This collaborative approach is critical in helping to achieve the Park’s Vision of ‘Changing lives and rethinking society by addressing some of the big global challenges’.
