27 Jan 2018 UK Science Park Association Annual Conference held in Swansea
The UK Science Park Association (UKSPA) held its annual conference in Swansea this year. Swansea University’s Medical School hosted the delegates at Swansea National Waterfront Museum.
Swansea University’s Prof Marc Clement who is part of the ARCH Delivery & Leadership Group spoke about the ARCH projects which make up the £1.3bn City Deal with Swansea Council leader Rob Stewart.
Professor Clement said: “The City Deal has kick-started a new profile and momentum for this region. This region is establishing itself as a leader in innovation, testing new concepts and then being able to commercialise them for a global market.
“We have started work on the School of Management’s Centre for Regional Innovation at the Civic Centre and further west, the Llanelli Wellness & Life Science Village project in Carmarthenshire is also taking shape with public engagement taking place and dialogue with potential project partners.”
Professor Marc Clement welcomed the UKSPA delegates to Swansea University during the two-day conference of the UK Science Park Association (UKSPA) on January 25th & 26th.
