Led by Universities, the UEZs will provide physical space/facilities for small, innovative start-up businesses. Businesses will also be able to access wraparound business support packages, specialist facilities and expert knowledge, including support from <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-trade-investment" target="_blank">UKTI</a> to promote inward investment onto their sites.

The incubator will support innovative, early stage companies, primarily in the life sciences sector. This forms part of the Government’s long term economic plan for the East of England to increase the growth rate, building on the world class science and technology base of Cambridge and the surrounding area.</p><p>Full details of current Growth Deals projects can be found in the attached document.</p><p> </p>
