The creation of the Innovation Centre was announced in March 2013 by the Minister for Universities and Science, the Rt Hon David Willets MP. Funded by NERC (Natural Environment Research Council), the initiative strengthens academic links between BAS and Cambridge University. The ambition is to stimulate new scientific and business collaborations that will lead to improved economic benefit for the UK.
BAS Director of Innovation Beatrix Schlarb-Ridley said,
“We are delighted to see this tender process going forward, and look forward to identifying the right partners with whom to deliver these valuable new facilities for innovation at British Antarctic Survey.”
