Abstract

The objective of this sub-project was to investigate how the incubation of biotechnology firms is delivered in practice. Based on the in-depth investigation of incubation at the Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst (SBC), this sub-project develops an ‘Incubation Activity Grid’ (IAG). The grid demonstrates the outcomes of incubation activities (capability development, opportunity creation and sustainability enhancement) as well as the level on which those outcomes occur (firm, network, eco-system). Based on a description of the IAG, this report proposes implications for further research but also makes suggestions how the IAG may be used in practice.
