We build on the innovative capabilities of our people and deliver a benefit to society from Sanger science by engaging with businesses and by creating commercial opportunities. We also develop a unique and vibrant ecosystem to establish and grow innovative genomics and biodata businesses.
Some of our initiatives are:
- Entrepreneurial training, events and networking, such as the Wellcome Genome Startup School;
- Partnering with industrial partners and direct commercialisation of our science;
- Engagement with the innovation ecosystem in Cambridge (and beyond), by representing Sanger science and Innovation, co-developing events and providing opportunities for networking and synergies with the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Cambridge.
