By continuing to connect our actions with the actions of others in our network, we will achieve our vision to make a difference to the lives of communities and environments across the world. We will have both local and global impact: developing sustainable solutions to meet the future health and prosperity of billions, and to protect our planet for future generations.

National and international collaborations are so important in ensuring world-leading research, but also for influencing and achieving world-changing outcomes. The Norwich Research Park must continue its global outlook to match the increasingly rapid internationalisation of society and our economy. In the UK, 50% of scientific publications include an international collaborator (Nature 2016).

Our research staff, students and employees within business are best placed to create and benefit from collaboration and the inward investment this brings to enable us to change lives and rethink society. On the Park we aim to create the environment within which these connections prosper and bring benefits at home and abroad.
