Situated close to the heart of Birmingham in the prime location of Edgbaston, adjacent to the main University campus and a short walk from the University station, Birmingham Research Park offers purpose built accommodation to organisations seeking to work in research, development and training.
Encouraging the growth of technology and knowledge based companies
The aim of the Park is to encourage the formation and growth of technology and knowledge based companies. Past and present tenant activities have built upon the University's areas of expertise and many of them have been founded by academic staff of the University wishing to exploit new technology arising from their research. Others have had external origins but are developing their own working relationships with University colleges. The Park currently has 18 tenants, almost all of which have a medical technology and healthcare focus.
A wide range of support is available for Research Park companies and the Research Park team can help tenant companies liaise with the University and with technical assistance in order to access sources of finance and professional advice.
Take the opportunity to have your business based at Birmingham Research Park, and gain the advantage of the wide range of support services available to knowledge-based and spin out companies.
Birmingham Research Park is a member of the UK Science Park Association and is recognised as having the facilities and experience to assist companies in the incubation process.
