The Northern Powerhouse, which includes the cities of Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle, accounts for a large proportion of UK life sciences exports with more than 1,000 life sciences and healthcare businesses. This makes up one of the largest life sciences clusters in Europe with a combined turnover of £10.8 billion. Due to its importance in the Northern Powerhouse, we are supporting businesses from the Health and Life Sciences industry as part of the levelling up agenda.

We are pleased to be hosting some exciting events over the coming months, including an International Market Programme focusing on doing business in specific regions, a must-attend Regulatory Symposium featuring 10 key industry speakers over two days,  and a full-day event focusing on the impact of the EU transition and considerations for the sector.

See our events programme and recordings below. We will be adding more events and recordings as they are available.
