New Anglia LEP press release – 27 August 2020
Laboratory complex will showcase region’s reputation for scientific innovation
State-of-the-art laboratories being built at Norwich Research Park will enhance the region’s growing reputation for scientific innovation in the agri-food sector.
A ‘topping out’ ceremony was held today (Thursday 27 August) to mark the progress being made on the £5m development, which is expected to unlock further investment at the Enterprise Zone site and could eventually create up to 150 jobs.
Norwich Research Park has one of the largest single-site concentrations of research in food, health and life sciences in Europe and is internationally renowned.
South Norfolk Council has invested up to £2.75m in the 19,000 sq ft building in Zone 4 and more than £550,000 towards the road infrastructure. New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has contributed £2.5m towards the building and £1.5m to the road infrastructure work.
