The Campus is strategically located in Stevenage, between Cambridge and London and right in the middle of the Golden Research Triangle. Sycamore House is located directly adjacent to Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst (“SBC”), and the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult Manufacturing Centre (“CGTCMC”).
The Campus benefits from good connectivity with established knowledge centres and a skilled workforce in close proximity. The facility will build on the strengths of the collaborative ecosystem based at Stevenage and support the further growth of the globally significant cell and gene therapy community. Kadans and SBC will collaborate to develop the campus ecosystem through new initiatives and value-add services. The aim will be to support the cross-campus community both locally as well as internationally, using the networks and reach of both organisations.
With direct access to the A1 highway via junctions 7 and 8 on the east side of the city, the connectivity of the Campus by car is considered good. Stevenage is well connected to major hubs. Cambridge is only 40 kilometres away and reachable within 40 minutes by train, and it takes only a 19-minute train journey to reach Kings Cross in London. In addition, Luton and Stansted international airports are reachable within 40 minutes and Heathrow within 1 hour.
