Supporting SMEs with the University of Hertfordshire’s Science Partnership

The University of Hertfordshire’s Science Partnership is a unique collaboration between the University and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) with a focus towards supporting small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs). It leverages the state of-the-art facilities and academic expertise at the University to boost the dynamic agri-technology and life sciences sector in Hertfordshire while providing a strong pipeline of applied scientists for the region through a translational Doctoral Training Centre.

Researchers within agriculture, food science and medicines development are linked with businesses, addressing a key gap in support for business-facing collaborative research that will generate the technologies suitable for later-stage innovation funds. It also fosters partnerships with world-renowned research institutions and is supported by Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst and Rothamsted Research.
