Universities demonstrate ongoing commitment to innovation with Sciontec

Two leading Universities institutions have agreed deals for over 23,000 sq ft at Sciontec owned Liverpool Science Park (LSP).

Both Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Liverpool have renewed their leases with Sciontec Developments Limited (Sciontec), extending their presence within Liverpool Science Park’s innovation centres.

The University of Liverpool has agreed a ten year deal, for circa 11,000 sq ft, to house research teams from their Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences. Occupying several Containment Level Two research laboratories within iC2 at LSP, 50+ researchers will integrate cutting-edge research in infectious diseases, veterinary science, ecology and evolution to benefit people, animals and ecosystems, nationally and globally.

Professor Matthew Baylis, Executive Dean of the Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences at the University of Liverpool, said:

“The interdisciplinary work undertaken within our Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences at LSP addresses major societal challenges, alongside research-led teaching for the next generation of medical and veterinary clinical practitioners.

“Continuing to operate from Liverpool Science Park, with its high specification laboratories and 24/7 access, provides us with the operational flexibility we need to undertake world leading research into new diagnostics, treatments and vaccines. This was evident throughout the pandemic, and will continue to be across the next decade and beyond.”

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has agreed a five year deal to remain within their 12,000 sq ft workspace at iC2 in LSP, from which their Astrophysics Research Institute (ARI) operates.
