Plymouth Science Park Journey

The Plymouth Science Park journey started in 1995 and was set up as a joint venture between University of Plymouth and Plymouth City Council. Our mission was simple yet ambitious: to support the growth of the region’s economy.

Today, thanks to our combination of first-class office facilities and cutting-edge support services, we are home to an ever-expanding range of businesses in the medical, science, technology and knowledge-based sectors. Our unique environment is guaranteed to open up a world of opportunities to young and growing companies.
