CANCELLED: RSA Salisbury Network Meeting

Fellowship Event


Porton Science Park, Salisbury

  • Fellowship

Join us for the Salisbury Network meeting this May.

N.B. This event has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconvenience.

At this network meeting we'll be discussing Porton Science Park and the development of life sciences and innovation in our region.

South Wiltshire and the wider Wessex Region are home to internationally renowned research and development facilities. Plans continue to reinforce what is one of the largest concentrations of life science expertise found in the UK.

The Porton Science Incubator is a new £10m state of the art building that forms the first phase of the Porton Science Park in South Wiltshire. It is based near leading scientific institutions: the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and Public Health England at the Porton Down Campus, near Salisbury.

The Park will comprise 33,000 sq.m of research and development accommodation on a 10 hectare site. The first phase comprises a 3,950 sq.m incubator building. Further phases will be developed specifically for occupiers.

The Phase 1 development is funded by Wiltshire Council, the Local Growth Fund via the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and European Regional Development Funding via the European Structural and Investment Fund. 

The scheme has the potential to create 2,000 jobs over 10 years. It is a milestone development for South Wiltshire and for the life sciences industry, with links to Salisbury Hospital and the academic life sciences network that will be of interest to many RSA Fellows.

If you have any access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please let the team know:

Location: Porton Science Park, Manor Farm Road, Wiltshire, Porton Down, Salisbury, SP4 0JQ
