Creating a Science University for South Wiltshire
“In January David Willetts announced his intention to encourage the formation of Science Universities to meet the challenges of the years ahead. Wiltshire has no university of its own. It does, however, have a remarkable number of world-class bio-scientists working at Porton Down and in the District Hospital, which is heavily engaged in genetic research. In this sense Salisbury is already a Science City.
We welcome the possibility of working in partnership to create a 21st century institution that operates in new ways to meet the challenges and opportunities of the years ahead.”
John Potter, RSA Fellow Salisbury
