Nine high-tech business clusters have joined forces to create a ‘super cluster’ across the Oxford to Cambridge Arc.
Roz Bird, commercial director for MEPC which owns Silverstone Park, has brought together nine chief executives of the main innovation networks to form the new group which aims to connect technology professionals and create opportunities across the region.
It also aims to support the supply chain and give the region’s tech sector a voice as the Government’s plans for the Arc develop
The nine are:
- Cambridge Cleantech
- Cambridge Network
- Cambridge Wireless
- Colworth Park
- MKAI (Milton Keynes Artificial Intelligence)
- One Nucleus
- Oxford Innovation
- Oxfordshire GreenTech
- Silverstone Technology Cluster
Roz Bird said: “I have worked with many of the high-tech cluster chief executives in the Oxford to Cambridge Arc over the years. They inspired me to set up Silverstone Technology Cluster and to establish the business community at Silverstone Park.
“We now have a golden opportunity to work together, as a ‘cluster of clusters’ – a super cluster – to explore ways to help the high-tech businesses, that we represent, to collaborate, trade with each other, and improve supply chain resilience.
“I am very much looking forward to working with this fantastic group of people, who represent the thousands of high-tech businesses in the Oxford to Cambridge Arc, with the aim of creating new business opportunities for the region.”
