Building an economy for the 21st century, capitalising on the scientific and technical history and ensuring continued innovation were reasons why the Council participated in the development of and investment in the MedBIC.
“The development and provision of Chelmsford’s first dedicated innovation centre for medical and advanced engineering has proved a sound investment. It provides an excellent stepping stone to future technically based business growth.”
