By 2030, the UK aims to establish itself as a global science and technology superpower, a goal well within its reach. Home to two of the world’s top-five universities for life sciences and with a substantial share of European life-science start-ups, the UK is an extremely attractive market, with demand currently outstripping supply.
The UK government is also fully committed to the sector's development, having announced £200m of investment through the Life Sciences Investment Programme and, in the private sector, more than £9.5bn has been invested by venture capitalists over the past two years. It’s an exciting time to be in life sciences!
