Regional universities are key partners to Sci-Tech Daresbury in bringing support and expertise to technology companies in areas such as:

  • Student projects & placements

  • Exhibition enabling you to meet with representatives from 10 regional universities and Innovate UK to explore potential areas of support and collaboration.
