St John’s Innovation Park is at the centre of the North Cambridge Research and Development Cluster.
Consisting of St John’s Innovation Park, Cambridge Science Park and Cambridge Business Park, the northern aspect of the cluster is the most established and well connected. Connections have been further improved with the new Cambridge North railway station and extended guided busway serving the area.
Cambridge’s northern cluster is home to a range of well known, cutting edge and prestigious R&D, technology and life science companies. A handful of those occupiers include Samsung, Qualcomm, Napp Pharmaceuticals, Astra Zeneca, Citrix, Takeda, Amgen, Hewlett Packard, Dark Trace and Toshiba.
St John’s Innovation Park was established on a 21-acre plot of land owned by St John’s College since 1534.
The Innovation Centre was completed in 1987 and was the first of its kind in Europe focusing on supporting knowledge-based businesses. Following the success of the original centre, a second phase, Dirac House, was completed in July 1989, and the self-contained Jeffreys Building was completed in 1990. Four further buildings: St John’s House, Edinburgh House, and the Vitrum and Platinum developments, were completed in 2001. The land remains property of St John’s College.
