You will also have the support of Rothamsted’s scientific services and guidance from the Rothamsted Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation team.
You might want to establish your multi-partner agri-related consortia here in our Innovation Hub, enjoying access to office facilities, facilitating closer collaboration with Rothamsted. Additional desk space is available on flexible terms within the agile working suite to accommodate visiting colleagues and partners.
If you would like a presence at Rothamsted but without committing to taking permanent space, you might want to take advantage of our associate service.
