Put Yourself at the Centre Of Scientific Discovery
Kent’s life sciences sector has created some of the most revolutionary and world-renowned medicines in existence.
Pfizer, Mylan, Diasorin, Smiths Medical and over 450 other life science sector companies have made Kent their home over the years, putting the county on the map as a key location for everything from bio-tech, pharmaceuticals and diagnostics to global science logistics, med-tech manufacturers and contract research organisations.
Pharmaceutical giants and SMEs have developed collaborative clusters of excellence for research and drug discovery in key locations around the county. Two of the UK’s leading science parks – Discovery Park and Kent Science Park – and the emerging North Kent Enterprise Zone allow businesses access to state of the art facilities while saving on overheads thanks to cheaper commercial costs and discounted business rates.
Kent’s science parks and universities have also shaped a collaborative environment in the region, in which students, scientists and business professionals thrive through research, development and innovation. These local initiatives coupled with dedicated undergraduate courses and the new Kent & Medway Medical School will ensure that you can find the right staff, trained to professional standards and with an understanding of the latest life science challenges.
Thanks to the county’s perfect location between Europe and the ‘Golden Triangle’ of London, Oxford and Cambridge, your business will be fully immersed in a vibrant and international scientific community.
