Welcome to Sci-Tech Daresbury

Sci-Tech Daresbury is a National Science and Innovation Campus established in 2006 ideally located in the Liverpool City Region between Runcorn, Warrington, Manchester and Liverpool. London is only two hours away.

In 2010 a joint-venture (JV) company was formed with exciting plans for further expansion of the site. Partners in the JV company are developers Langtree, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and Halton Borough Council. Since then the JV has delivered on its plans for growth, new buildings and world-class facilities, a life-long home for successful businesses.

Sci-Tech Daresbury is internationally recognised through the reputation of the STFC Daresbury Laboratory and Hartree Centre in leading-edge research and development, and the successful establishment of its open innovation model.

Currently there are over 1,300 people on site, including world class scientists working in a variety of scientific fields including accelerator science, high performance computing, simulation and data analytics and sensors and detectors.

It operates large-scale facilities used by many UK universities as well as an increasing number of industrial companies (eg IBM, Unilever, Bentley Motors, BAe Systems).

Sci-Tech Daresbury is home to nearly 150 high-tech companies in areas such as advanced engineering, digital/ICT, biomedical and energy and environmental technologies.

These vary from start-up companies to more mature SMEs to international corporates such as IBM and Atos. One in six companies have their headquarters outside the UK.

All these companies are catered for with a mix of flexible high-quality office, laboratory and technical space.

“Somewhere here like Sci-Tech Daresbury you see really exciting projects that you can be part of that will have a huge impact on people’s lives.”

The Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Prime Minister – January 2017
