An innovation centre has been opened at Liverpool’s science park.
The innovation centre, called ic2 has been funded by both the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and the European Objective One.
The innovation centre will provide facilities such as laboratory equipment, flexible tenancy agreements, specialist business support and high-speed broadband to the science companies in the area.
According Mark Hughes, the Executive Director of the NWDA, the scientific sector is a crucial player in driving the economy in the region.
“The launch of the second innovation centre at [Liverpool Science Park] will help to attract new science and knowledge-based companies to the city, as well as enabling existing companies to expand, creating new jobs and bringing in new investment,” he added.
Since it’s opening in 2006, the Liverpool’s science park has attracted 22 science companies to the area.
