Greater Birmingham is primed to see an explosion in growth and development of the life sciences sector, after heavy investment in the sector.
The region has 600 medical technology companies, the most in the UK, one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and the Institute of Translational Medicine.
There are also plans for Birmingham City Council, University of Birmingham and Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) to deliver a £171 million Life Sciences Park that will house 400,000 sqft of office space and laboratories for life sciences firms.
The economic benefits of the growth of this sector are set to put Greater Birmingham on the global map for this sector.
In light of this, the Chamber will be hosting an event that will discuss the exciting prospects and future of life sciences in the region with a range of industry experts.
