The Deep Tech Network is organised by Imperial College London’s Chemistry department, Enterprise Division and Upstream (a partnership between College and Hammersmith and Fulham Council), with the intention of encouraging interaction and collaboration between business and Imperial’s researchers and developing a deep-tech innovation ecosystem around Imperial’s White City campus.

In Autumn 2018 Chemistry became the first of Imperial’s departments to move from South Kensington to White City, taking up residence at the Molecular Science Research Hub (MSRH). The MSRH brings together nearly 800 scientists, clinicians, engineers and business partners and houses the equipment and infrastructure to support a twenty-first-century approach that can address common challenges in areas such as energy, healthcare, and sustainability.

The Deep Tech Network events will represent an exciting opportunity to convene businesses, academics and entrepreneurs using science, technology and engineering to combat global challenges. Speakers will come from a range of sectors including biotech, pharma, medtech, energy, cleantech and greentech materials and industrial biotech, consumer goods, food and agri-tech, fintech, telecommunications and defence.
