Innovation, Science Parks and BBSRC

15 June 2021 12:00-13:15

The five BBSRC campuses are each distinct and at a different stage of development. These differences reflect the research strengths, nature of the end user markets and regional context of each location. As part of the webinar, each of the five CEOs will reflect on their individual campus’ journey, framing their individual roles within the UK innovation system in the context of their long term ambitions.
