MediCity director David Browning outside the refurbished D6 building
MediCity, a new centre that will nurture the new generation of healthcare innovators, officially opened for business today at the Nottingham Enterprise Zone.
The centre is housed at the historic D6 building which has been refurbished to provide fully serviced office and laboratory space. MediCity will offer a stimulating and supportive business development environment for innovators in consumer healthcare, medical technology, diagnostics and beauty products, as well as support for early stage businesses.
A collaboration between Boots and BioCity, MediCity aims to become a new centre of excellence in health, beauty and wellness and will also offer a venue for conferences and events of eventually up to 1,000 delegates.
Communities Minister Baroness Stowell said: “Medicity will be great news for Nottingham, creating a new space for businesses to grow and helping to boost local jobs and the city’s economy.
“This government is backing Nottingham and the Enterprise Zone because the vision is there to build on Beeston’s health heritage and make this a thriving place for business and innovation.”
Enterprise Zones are a long term investment to rebalance the economy, but they are already firmly laying down the foundations for their future success.
