Science City York

Science City York was the UK’s founding Science City. In the 19 years since then Science City York has helped to create more than 120 businesses, to secure more than £31 million of investment and has worked collaboratively with thousands of businesses in and around York.

Although SCY is now part of Make It York, the core principle of Science City York remains the same : to support three key networks – bioscience, creative and IT & digital.  We run a huge number of networking events and business meetings (usually at low or no cost) and we encourage you to contact Sarah  if you would like to be added to our events and marketing list to be informed of these activities as they happen.

As well as ensuring the Science City York networks continue to flourish, Science City York has been heavily engaged with 3 key projects:

  • A European funded £700k gamification app, aimed at enriching the tourist experience in York, which finished at the end of Sept 201
  • In partnership with FERA, working on a £1.6 million, European funded project to offer business support for agrifood companies
  • The UNESCO City of Media arts network and maximising on the benefits to the city through working with international partners.
  • Community projects to encourage young people to become more enterprising.
