CPC sponsors Science & Innovation conference
With the UK Government placing science and technological innovation at the forefront of its economic growth priorities, CPC has teamed up with Built Environment Networking, as a sponsor, for its upcoming ‘Tomorrow’s Science and Innovation Clusters’ conference in October.
Investors, developers, occupiers, policy influencers and the real estate supply chain will unite at The Custard Factory in Birmingham to discuss how the science, tech and innovation sector can deliver on the Government’s ambitions for the UK to be recognized as a ‘science superpower’ and ‘innovation nation’.
CPC’s Allen Beever, Head of Cost Management for Health, Education, Science Technology (HEST) will chair the conference’s opening session on ‘Using Science and Innovation Regeneration for UK PLC Growth’. Allen will be joined by an expert panel of guests including Dr Barbara Ghinelli, Director of Clusters and Campus Development at the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
CPC will also be introducing ‘Constructing Science’, an industry-wide collaboration to standardise the language of life sciences with universally agreed standards detailing the requirements of different forms of health and life sciences real estate. The online tool and report has been designed to help the science-based community to fast-track the scoping phase of developments and get schemes off of the ground much quicker.
Allen Beever, CPC Partner said “We are delighted to be a sponsor at Built Environment Networking’s Tomorrow’s Science and Innovation Clusters conference in Birmingham. As industry leaders in delivering science and technology-based facilities, we understand the opportunities and complex challenges facing the industry today and tomorrow. We look forward to being part of the debate and discussions amongst all stakeholders within the private and public sectors to push forward the growth agenda for UK Science, Tech and Innovation.”
