New UKSPA Chairman Dr Glenn Crocker MBE looks at how the Association will need to respond to a rapidly changing landscape…
I’m delighted to be taking over the Chair of UKSPA, albeit daunted by following in the footsteps of David Hardman, who has performed the role so well.
Like many in the sector, I don’t have a traditional property background. I started out as a research scientist with a DPhil in Immunology but quickly realised that the world of bench research probably would probably be better off without me.
There has never been a better time to join UKSPA - The UK’s only national association for science parks, innovation centres, technology Incubators, and other innovation locations.
The Association’s work is also enhanced by our business affiliate members who support, grow and deliver advice to UKSPA member locations, as well as adding value to the UKSPA network by providing products and services, as well as delivering facilities, buildings and infrastructure to the science and Innovation sector
UKSPA is delighted to announce Business & Innovation Magazine as the official event media partner for the forthcoming UKSPA Autumn Conference taking place at Culham Science Centre 7-8 November 2019.
