The Cambridge Phenomenon

The East of England is home to 5.5 million people and is one of the fastest growing regional economies in the UK generating £105bn towards the total GDP*. As part of the Greater South East, the Eastern Region is the 10th largest economy in the world.

Cambridge is the heart of a vibrant international technology cluster that applies leading scientific and technological know-how to commercial needs. This consultancy cluster has played a very significant role in the growth of new industry sectors such as industrial inkjet printing, and a range of applications for wireless information and communication technologies.**

Energy and environment is a major development area with internationally influential R&D at the University of Cambridge. By locating at Granta Park®, the specialist skills pool, high-quality research and commercialisation activity as well as the collaborative culture are all easily accessible
