Science Park Reaches Out To Community

Exciting plans to develop a Science Park on the outskirts of Gaerwen are progressing well. An event will be held in the village to ensure that the community are involved and fully aware of the project.

Menai Science Park, a subsidiary company of Bangor University, will be a home for science based and innovative businesses and organisations that are eager to thrive in a range of sectors. The Park will benefit from investments in areas such as energy, environmental services and clean technology, but projects in other sectors will also be welcome. The aim is to create and support skilled and well paid employment in the area.

Outreach programmes will be run to encourage children and young people into science subjects and to demonstrate the availability of science based jobs in the region.

“The project is about much more than a building” said Ieuan Wyn Jones the Project director, “it’s about  supporting research projects capable of creating sustainable and highly skilled employment opportunities for young people in the region.”  

The project team are eager to provide information on the idea and to gather comments from the community. An information day will be held at the Petrol Station on the Stermat site in Gaerwen between 15:00 and 19:00 on the 1st of July.
