The Minister for Economy, Science & Transport, Mrs Hart opens the Life Sciences Hub.

Representatives from the Life Sciences Research Network Wales attended the launch of the Life Science Hub on the 17th of July. 

The Hub is based in Cardiff Bay and aims to bring together academics, businesses, clinicians, professional services and funding organisations to drive economic growth within the Welsh life science sector.  Along with the £100m Life Sciences Investment Fund, the Hub aims to attract inward investment as well as nurture and accelerate the growth of life science businesses within Wales.
