Wessex Fields, Bournemouth
Wessex Fields aims to provide the ideal environment to nurture industry-leading innovation research. It provides a fantastic opportunity to scale-up existing collaboration (University Hospitals Dorset and Bournemouth University) to create more growth among healthcare professionals, research and businesses within a new, cutting-edge MedTech Science Park.
Digital ‘smart’ health is a growing sector and the site’s proximity to University Hospitals Dorset provides a unique opportunity to combine medical research with some of the fastest IT connectivity in the country and a specialist university in medical science and healthcare.
It will be a carbon-neutral development, promoting the healthy use of green space while creating a landmark development. The Dorset MedTech Science Park will be the home of the Dorset Living Lab, as well as a mixed-use development to support the growth of the MedTech sector, including incubation facilities, grow-on space, and around 500 key worker homes.
