World leader in servicing science Thermo Fisher Scientific has formalised a UK-first partnership with Science Creates to support deep tech founders and their teams in their journey to commercialising groundbreaking IP in healthcare and sustainability.

The new deal offers Science Creates member companies access to Thermo Fisher equipment, consumables and software, continued technical support and training events.

Francis Lister, Science Creates’ Head of Innovation and Partnerships, said: “No matter the scale of our partner, partnerships are all about people and I have particularly enjoyed working with the team at Thermo Fisher to develop and launch this partnership. Having world-renowned partners such as Thermo Fisher backing our mission is not only crucial to enable startup success, it also demonstrates that leaders in the science sector understand the true value and impact of what we are trying to do – supporting deep tech founders across every stage of their journey so they can improve our lives and our environment.”

Abhinav Akhoury, Thermo Fisher’s Vice President of Corporate Accounts, said: “Thermo Fisher is thrilled to embark on a long-term strategic partnership with Science Creates, as it presents an exciting opportunity for us to expand our support and solidify our commitment towards Science Creates’ mission of a startup-led deep tech community that offers access to lab space, funding, training, events and a network of partners —all of which are crucial in the journey to technology commercialization. This collaboration will not only contribute to the growth of the life sciences ecosystem in the UK, but also enable Science Creates’ members to leverage Thermo Fisher’s scale and depth of life science capabilities to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.”
