Celebrating 25 Years



Join us to celebrate 25 Years


University of Wolverhampton Science Park, a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Wolverhampton City Council, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month.

At the heart of the celebrations, taking place for a week from Monday 19 October, are stories from the Science Park’s tenants, including case studies and a new, professional video from tenants Stone’s Throw Media, highlighting the Science Park’s milestone events over the past 25 years.

There will also be visual designs linking back to the site’s interesting history; on 5 September 1862 a flight by British aeronauts James Glaisher and Henry Coxwell broke the world flight altitude record, reaching 30,000 to 36,000 ft (9,000 to 11,000 m).

Here from some of our tennants below






“We've gone from two people to eight and being at the Science Park has certainly helped .  It's gone from being a good location to an excellent location and the culture of constant improvement sits really well with our ethos too and it is this which is helping business growth and re-location here.”


Matt Weston, Stone's Throw Media



"Limited access to laboratory space is a major barrier to entry for many bio-technology start-ups.

Our decision to locate at the Science Park was an easy one.”


Sarah Akbar, Managing Director of Aliksir


The specialist facilities at the Science Park are ideal for businesses like ours, giving us the opportunity to enhance our research and development activities.

It also allows us to access a multitude of support channels and collaboration with like-minded businesses.”


Matt Eccles, Marketing Director for TyTek Industries
