A Science Park for the next generation
The University of Wolverhampton Science Park has been supporting businesses from science, technology, knowledge-based and creative sectors through every stage of their development for over two decades and has become known as one of the region’s most vibrant technology communities.
The site has a long association with industry and enterprise. The previous occupants, the Electric Construction Company (ECC), built a factory for electrical engineering construction in 1888. Unfortunately, nearly one hundred years later, the works closed in 1985. The vacant site soon became part of the concept and planning for the Wolverhampton Science Park, the first phase of which opened in 1994, with further expansions occurring in 2000 and 2004.
To help boost regional economic performance, the concept of Smart Specialisation has been adopted by the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership; resulting in a focus on sectors such as aerospace, automotive, construction and life sciences.
The University of Wolverhampton’s recent investment in these sectors will allow firms to capitalise on a highly skilled graduate base and collaborate with the University's research centres/institutes, all of which have elements that have been assessed as world leading.
The newly opened Science, Technology and Prototyping facilities will provide the region with much-needed high quality laboratories and workshop space helping to attract inward investment to the area.
This unrivalled specialist space for scientific-based businesses features Category 1 & 2 laboratories, workshops and configurable office space. All co-located on site with access to the University’s expertise, business support from the Black Country Growth Hub and access to a variety of professional business services (such as Patent expertise, tax-credit experts, etc.) to help your business grow and gain a real competitive edge.
