Harnessing the potential of campus-based science and innovation.
On Thursday 27th April, Over 100 people attended the Campus 2040 symposium at Harwell Campus, where colleagues from leading science and tech campuses from around the world met to make new connections and enjoy the exciting programme of presentations and discussion.
World-leading research and innovation campuses are home to diverse communities of start-ups, research institutes, innovation giants and national scientific facilities. They are the places where start ups begin, where series A, B and C funding is secured, where advanced manufacturers design and make astonishing products.
They are linked to, but distinct from, local universities and key parts of their local community. They are home to thousands of scientists, engineers and innovators. But what challenges are these campuses facing and how should they respond to deliver the biggest possible economic, scientific, and societal benefits?
The Pioneer Campus 2040 project pools the collective intelligence of eight world-leading campuses to find, despite differences in local context, common themes that will influence our future success. The report explores critical success factors, common challenges and potential futures of eight leading science and innovation campuses around the world.
