Yorks. innovation centre offers potential for scientific sales jobs

A new North Yorkshire innovation centre is expected to create hundreds of scientific jobs, including scientific sales jobs.

The Sand Hutton Applied Innovation Campus is to welcome its first tenants later this year, providing start-up and developing scientific businesses with the investment and research facilities to help them grow.

The site includes the York Science and Enterprise Centre, which was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The campus spokesman, Dr Patrick Bonnett, said that the labs and research amenities on the site would operate on a ‘plug and play’ principle, in that they could be changed to meet the needs of all the different companies as they develop.

He told the Yorkshire Post that it would become a “multi-occupancy site populated by a range of knowledge rich science and innovation based organisations”.

“Businesses are focused on the areas of food, environment and applied life sciences with the common theme being ‘translational’ research,” Dr Bonnett explained. “They are working across scientific disciplines to deliver practical applications that help people and society.”

As well as the labs and offices the site also offers a 250-seat conference hall, along with meeting rooms and a video conferencing facility.
