Our Cambridge forum in November at Newnham College

Our 'science cities' forum in November will now be held at Newnham College, Cambridge, in the brand new conference rooms in the Dorothy Garrod Building, Sidgwick Avenue.The building opened in 2018 and was awarded the RIBA East 'Building of the Year 2019' award.

The College worked with Walters & Cohen Architects, BHSLA Landscape Architects, Savills and other specialist consultants to produce the outstanding design and energy efficiency for the new building. The College's alumnae include Lucy Wills, the haematologist, novelist A.S. Byatt, actor and screen writer Emma Thompson, politician Diane Abbott, the DNA chemist Rosalind Franklin and the primatologist Jane Goodall.

The Office for Life Sciences' Director Tamsin Berry will be speaking at our forum on the growth of life science clusters in the UK, along with the search for international talent and the city environments that encourage innovation and collaboration, while creating a high quality environment for the people that work and live there.
