For the second year running, EG and Bidwells will host this conference that will revisit how far Britain has come in unlocking its scientific potential, and how real estate is evolving to enable the UK to become a global science and technology superpower.

We will explore what challenges the UK faces in attracting key talent and investment to drive our economy forward during a time of uncertainty. Ask how the Oxford-Cambridge Arc can maintain its position as a positive contributor to the economy and benefit other regional clusters. And how we can create the right place, infrastructure and resources for collaboration and multi-disciplinary approaches.

Join us for this full-day event, where we will bring together leading scientists, government ministers, scientific enterprises, and investors to discuss how the UK can continue its journey to becoming a scientific superpower.

Registration for the event has been closed.
