“M-SParc a huge asset for Wales”, says Welsh Government Deputy Minister

M-SParc was excited to welcome Welsh Government Deputy Minister for Climate Change, Lee Waters, this week to meet businesses based at the Science Park developing cutting-edge innovations in a range of sectors from housing to agriculture climate change and tourism.

The Deputy Minister, who also holds the Digital Infrastructure portfolio, met M-SParc’s Skills Academy members to learn more about how the Science Park is working to plug the digital skills gap in Wales, and received a presentation regarding M-SParc’s work in the low carbon energy sector.
"M-SParc is not just a science park, it's
a whole ecosystem for harnessing the ideas
and the people who will create the jobs of tomorrow."

M-SParc and Bangor University are working on an exciting proposal for a facility called Egni - part of the Low Carbon Energy Centre of Excellence put forward in the North Wales Growth Deal - which was central to the Park’s Low Carbon presentation to Mr Waters. If the proposal is to go ahead, the facility will help create hundreds of jobs in the future, dramatically boosting the region’s economy.

Some of the Science Park’s start-ups met with the Deputy Minister to discuss their experiences and the support they’ve received to develop and grow digital businesses in Wales, and Mr Waters learnt about the work of M-SParc’s tenants in AgriTech and Digital Connectivity as well.

Following a jam-packed visit, Menai Science Park Managing Director Pryderi ap Rhisiart said:

“It was fantastic to welcome Lee Waters to M-SParc today and showcase the excellent work being done by our tenants in a variety of vital sectors, from low carbon to digital connectivity, AgriTech and beyond.

“There are clear opportunities for Wales to be at the forefront of development in all of these sectors, and we’re proud of the work our tenants are doing to make a positive impact in this regard.

“We’re achieving exactly what we set out to do at M-SParc, having a positive impact on the economy, creating opportunities for people across the region, and supporting our tenants to innovate and create well-paid jobs in a range of sectors, and it was great to demonstrate all of that to the Deputy Minister today.”

Deputy Minister for Climate Change Lee Waters said:

“M-SParc is not just a science park, it’s a whole ecosystem for harnessing the ideas and the people who will create the jobs of tomorrow. It is a great model for how Universities and businesses can work together, and it is a huge asset for Wales as a whole.”
