Discovery Park and Researcher partner to support scientific collaboration

Discovery Park, Kent’s thriving life science community, has partnered with scientific content discovery and discussion platform, Researcher, to promote collaboration and facilitate scientific progress.

Building strong networks of like-minded organisations is vital to support the growing life science industry and facilitate the sharing of expertise. Discovery Park and Researcher’s aligned values of collaboration and supporting research to advance scientific progress presented a clear partnership opportunity. Both parties will be introduced to a wider, highly relevant audience, allowing increased visibility within the scientific community.

As part of the partnership, Discovery Park will introduce its life science tenants to Researcher and its new AI market intelligence tool REID (Researcher Equipment Insights Directory). Researcher will promote Discovery Park’s start-up programme, Discovery Spark, to its users and is also offering one year’s free access to REID to the winner. Discovery Park will also feature as sponsors of a live events series on Researcher Live.

Mary Sweny, Head of Partnerships and Business Development at Researcher, commented: “Having met the Discovery Park team at several events recently, it’s clear that there are lots of synergies and benefits of working together, and this partnership clearly provides a great opportunity for us to further support scientific collaboration and discovery. We’re delighted to be working with Martino and the Discovery Park team and look forward to seeing the impact our partnership will have on innovative science organisations and their research.”

Martino Picardo, Chairman of Discovery Park, added: “We’re committed to providing a supportive network that facilitates collaboration and delivers exciting opportunities to companies based at Discovery Park. This partnership not only gives us the opportunity to engage with a wider audience, but also offers our tenants access to a unique, forward-looking platform that will help them to collaborate and drive the progress of their research.”
