Life Sciences


Sector: Life Sciences


Some commentators have high hopes, suggesting that the Corridor connecting Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Oxford could be Britain’s Silicon Valley - a globally recognised centre for science, technology and innovation.

Cambridge, as a generalist specialises more strongly in Science and Technology sectors, whereas Oxford has a more business and market focused orientation, but the sector is well represented in a number of areas through the Corridor.

From computers to video games, radio to wireless technologies and from test tubes to blockbuster drugs, the sheer variety of what goes on in Cambridge is quite staggering.

Milton Keynes remains focused on pushing the boundaries in relation to transport technology such as driverless cars and its aspiration of becoming a Smart city. With Cranfield University providing a further stimulation to technology based developments.

In Oxford, the key knowledge based clusters are: bioscience and medical technologies; physics related activities (cryogenics, instruments and magnets). Although world-famous for its motorsport capabilities, the area around Silverstone has evolved significantly, specialising in aeronautics, automotive, medical industries, green energy, marine, defence, electronics and sensors, as well as motorsports.
