Life Sciences

 

D2N2 is home to over 200 medical technology firms. Demand in the life sciences sector is being driven by new and developing technologies, growing global wealth and an ageing population. The sector is particularly important in Nottingham where it is a key driver of innovation.

The Life Sciences sector builds on historical strengths and a significant pharmaceutical presence, the HQ of Alliance Boots, BioCity and MediCity are in Nottingham. It's a nationally significant sector and provides an opportunity for niche producers and university spin-outs. The manufacture of medical and wearable devices, whilst a relatively small sub-sector, is a particularly high value sub-sector of manufacturing with a high level of R&D activity.
