At Discovery Park, we don’t just work to make today a success, we’re always looking to tomorrow. STEM education is a vital part of what we do, sparking a love of science to last a lifetime.
This is a science park built on collaboration, with young scientists benefiting from unrivalled access to companies carrying out innovative and pioneering research in laboratories on site – from immuno-oncology and diagnostics to new forms of antibiotics.
For example, PhD students working out of Canterbury Christ Church University’s (CCCU) Life Sciences Industry Liaison Laboratory, launched on site in 2016 have been supporting tenants Genea Biomedx and Venomtech in exploring a variety of potential new treatments and processes.
From the colourful Big Bang and East Kent Science Jamboree school events to the Community Lab, a partnership between Discovery Park, Pfizer, CCCU and STEM Learning , Discovery Park supports events for all stages of learning. Add in apprenticeships, we’re not simply raising awareness, but creating an environment for training, ambition and job creation.
Discovery Park is ensuring the skills and expertise built up on this site over decades as a science hub continue to grow for generations to come, a talent pool that pharma and biotech companies located here are able to access.
