Our Vision

At the Heart of a High-Tech Community

Our mission is to seamlessly integrate world-class science and technology, innovation and business enterprise within a dynamic campus setting; to drive discovery, open up new commercial opportunities, deliver high-value jobs and sustainable economic growth.

Ultimately this will deliver 1 million square feet of space for scientific, business and research facilities, creating up to 10,000 jobs on the site.

It is based on five principles:

  • Driving excellence in science and technology
  • Business growth through innovation
  • Developing a world-class science campus
  • Attracting and developing the very best talent
  • Powering productivity through partnerships

Our focus over the next 3-5 years will be to:

  • Realise the Hartree Centre’s full potential for economic impact, particularly through its partnership with IBM
  • Develop the cluster of data intensive businesses built around the world-class capabilities of the Hartree Centre
  • Develop clusters around our specialisms, such as advanced engineering and medtech
  • Equip the UK with next-generation light source capability
  • Deliver a ‘home for life’ offering through development of new campus infrastructure and business facilities
