Cambridge science park


The Cambridge Science Park, founded by Trinity College in 1970, is the oldest science park in the United Kingdom. It is a concentration of science and technology related businesses, and has strong links with the nearby University of Cambridge.

Contents

The science park is situated about 3 km to the north of Cambridge city centre, by junction 33 of the A14, in the parish of Milton, contiguous with Cambridge itself.

History

The land was originally given to Trinity College when the latter was founded by Henry VIII in 1546. The land was used for farming until the Second World War, when it was requisitioned by the US Army and used to prepare vehicles and tanks for D-Day. After the war, the land was left derelict until 1970, when, at the suggestion of Tony Cornell, and under the supervision of Sir John Bradfield, the college worked with Sir Francis Pemberton of Bidwells to develop it into a new centre for scientific enterprise and innovation.

Businesses in the Science Park

The following table lists the businesses operating in the Cambridge Science Park as of November 2011.

Cambridge Fun Run

The Cambridge Fun Run is a charity race for Children In Need organised and mainly entered by employees of businesses based in and around the Science Park. It has been held each November since 1989. Contestants compete in teams of four, some in fancy dress, running either one lap (as a group) or four laps (as a relay) of the 1.8 km (1.1 mi) Science Park ring road. The race begins and ends, and medals and trophies are awarded (for fastest runners and best costumes) in front of the Cambridge Consultants building.
