Michael Norris – Head of Business Incubation at STFC


The ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) is launching at Sci-Tech Daresbury.

STFC has managed the UK’s ESA BIC at Harwell, Oxfordshire for the last 7 years working with companies to turn space-connected bussiness ideas into commercial start-up companies. It provides 10 companies a year with an impressive, carefully designed support package lasting one and two years that enables them to harness space-related intellectual property, technologies and expertise through the provision of £41,500 grant funding, access to STFC’s world-class research facilities and skills, and dedicated business support.

To dare, over 60 companies have been incubated by the centre. This year the facility celebrated its 50th graduate. Hear from STFC’s Head of Business Incubation about how the centre will support companies at Sci-Tech Daresbury
