It’s the mix that makes the tenant community at Discovery Park so vibrant. Over 160 companies, from start-ups to multinationals, are working in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, healthcare, technology, professional services and more. Plenty of opportunities to collaborate and learn something new!
Through being a tenant, eXroid has had access to government training schemes and universities, as well as grant and other funders. We have received funding from Kent County Council, South East Business Boost and Innovate UK. This has had a very real impact on our business, helping us achieve a CE mark for our device.
The Health Hub at Discovery Park provides us with a very useful platform for interaction with other companies.
We are really happy with our new laboratory – we started work immediately, with no delays.
Serendipity, collaboration, innovation – we know they link together to drive advances in technology and healthcare. With our regular social and networking events, our tenants have plenty of opportunity to exchange ideas in an informal environment.
Having an events centre on site means that Discovery Park and its occupiers can host industry-leading conferences too, bringing even more opportunity to meet new partners.
The community at Discovery Park is rich with different companies and individuals. There’s multinationals like Pfizer, multi-site UK companies like Concept Life Sciences, smaller healthcare firms and even some PhD students in the mix. Our patient-facing companies have formed a vibrant Health Hub to find more ways for them to work together.

Discovery Park has been open for business, albeit in a socially distanced way, throughout the coronavirus epidemic.
Discovery Park is committed to helping local students benefit from a great STEM education. By igniting a life-long love of science, we are ensuring the continuation of a local talent pool that pharma and biotech companies are able to access.
Our initiatives include:
• The colourful Big Bang and East Kent Science Jamboree school events
• The award-winning Community Lab, a partnership between Discovery Park, Pfizer, CCCU and STEM Learning, providing an opportunity for our community to pass on skills and knowledge. Read about the effect the Community Lab is having on local students and schools in our January 2020 Impact Report here.
