Newlands Science Park

Newlands Science Park


The history of Newlands Science Park dates back to 1983 when the University of Hull and Hull City Council met to discuss the City's need to retain and at the same time introduce and encourage more high-technology and knowledge-based businesses within the area.

Located on the University campus in a pleasant working environment, Newlands Science Park has all the benefits of the University close at hand, giving companies immediate access to expertise and facilities not otherwise readily available to small organisations.

Newlands Science park has three primary objectives:

  • to encourage companies engaged in developments complementary with work being undertaken by the University, to locate to NSP in order foster collaboration.
  • to speed up the technology transfer process by providing appropriate start-up and expansion facilities for businesses established by academics and graduates to exploit their research and development ideas.
  • to act as a focus to encourage the growth of high-technology and knowledge based industry in Kingston upon Hull and the immediate region.
