Accelerating development through multidisciplinary collaboration

This joint networking event, between BIA, Harwell Campus and Diamond Light Source, will bring together BIA members and Harwell Campus occupiers from the Space, HealthTec and EnergyTec clusters, as well as the wider bioscience community. This thought leadership event will focus on how collaboration across disciplines inside a rich and diverse life sciences ecosystem such as Harwell Campus can be a catalyst for innovation in research and discovery.

An eminent panel will discuss how the ‘cluster principle’ combined with multidisciplinary collaboration is finding solutions to key challenges more quickly, leading to shorter timescales to market and more rapid, successful scale-up for organisations.
