NETPark 10 Year Strategy

NETPark has a bold vision and an ambitious strategy for the next 10 years – we want to become the global hub for materials integration, supporting companies to integrate materials into innovative, high value products with enormous social and economic impact. Products that will help us be healthier, generate sustainable energy, keep us safe and secure in the world and transform the lives of those around us.

For every success we’ve had, we want hundreds more. By 2025 NETPark will not just be a destination of choice it will be a destination of necessity for SMEs, bluechips, universities and governments who want to unleash the potential of materials, transforming them into products that change all our lives for the better.

Come and join us on this journey.

Tenant Feedback

Ithaka Life Sciences is one of the original tenants at NETPark, having had a regional office here since 2005. We have been well served by the facilities, including our offices, meeting rooms and other support provided to tenants, the opportunities for networking, and in particular the staff at NETPark who are continually helpful to us. The overall presentation of the site means it is a pleasure for us to host client meetings at NETPark.

Paul Rodgers, Ithaka Life Sciences
