New name, look and direction for Birmingham’s Science Park
The Aston Science Park, owned by Birmingham City Council, is undergoing a re-launch this autumn as part of a new look and direction.
Following 27 years in operation, the Science Park – now known as Birmingham Science Park Aston – will provide services to assist high-tech start-up and early-stage businesses in the region.
Led by Managing Director Dr David Hardman MBE, the Park’s new direction offers business support and development as part of its Entrepreneurs for the Future Centre, along with quality business accommodation.
Dr Hardman says:
“Birmingham Science Park Aston will help create new high-tech businesses to diversify the economy, by supporting first time entrepreneurs and innovators as they deliver their aspirations. It is about wealth creation that will lead to new jobs; about the intellectual capital to sustain the ‘Big City Plan’.”
He adds: “Birmingham Science Park Aston will position itself at the heart of the Digital District and drive translation of IT, communications and digital media technologies into successful businesses. It will act as a focal point for business and technical expertise, providing access to a menu of business support services and funding either directly or through partnership.”
Mike Whitby, Leader of Birmingham City Council and Chairman of Birmingham Science Park Aston, said:
“A successful Science Park can add to a city in numerous ways, supporting creativity, innovation and generating employment. We are lucky to have a Park with such a prestigious history, and I am now confident that Birmingham Science Park Aston has a bright future as well.”
