J&J nestles into five UK ‘excellence’ cities

Johnson & Johnson is continuing to establish a scientific networking approach with the establishment of five new partnerships within UK cities it considers to be academic and entrepreneurial “hotspots”.

The company says these will help with early-stage innovation, and support the translation of research into new products.

Following the establishment of hubs in international cities in April 2013 – when Boston, San Francisco and Shanghai were included with London – J&J will now establish further UK centres in Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester and Oxford.

Given the number and diversity of research campuses, incubators, and life science parks throughout the UK and Europe, we believe the establishing of these regional partnering offices will enable us to reach out and more effectively collaborate with innovators across the UK and Europe.
