Our life sciences industry relies on a strong pipeline of commerciallydriven research. As a small, connected nation, we make it easy for industry to collaborate with universities and move research projects towards market readiness:
In Wales, we have a first-class combination of academic institutions, industry and government developing innovative solutions. These technological solutions are needed to meet the significant challenges that lie ahead within the UK and global healthcare markets. Our £3m Bridging Fund helps researchers connect with industry and get products to market quicker.
We are working with industry to develop futures skills needs from Life Sciences entrepreneurs to technicians and operatives via a Life Science Apprenticeship Scheme.
Wales has a vibrant spinout community, with fresh and innovative young companies such as Alesi Surgical, an award-winning Cardiff University spinout developing pioneering surgical technology to aid surgeons clear surgical smoke and operate more efficiently.
