Investing in new tech innovation key to growth

With biological, clean energy and information technologies in the spotlight in the Innovation New Anglia project, industry figures have said how they feel their sectors could be best supported in this region.

For the biotech and agritech cluster at Norwich Research Park, a partner on the project, helping research to travel outside the laboratory is key. There are 75 registered companies on the park, equal to one opening per month since it was created in 2012.

Research park chief executive Sally Ann Forsyth said: “What is important to us is the translation of our world class research to get it into the market place. People really want to see their technology go out into the world, for the societal benefit.”

Through the project, workshops are being held at the park to equip researchers with entrepreneurial skills and advise on start-ups.
