Our Manufacturing Village Strategy

The strategy combines the site’s deep manufacturing expertise and excellent logistics with the need for life sciences manufacturing capacity, for example in advanced therapies.

Discovery Park is working to become a leader in the advanced, digitally enabled manufacturing that the healthcare systems and economies of the future will demand.

The opportunity to make this a reality has been recognised by the UK Government in awarding us Life Sciences Opportunity Zone status.
