Working with Industry

Ensuring optimal impact of our science on the economy

The work we do at the John Innes Centre has significant economic impacts – strengthening businesses, creating jobs and providing consumers with the products they demand.

A recent independent economic review concluded that we deliver £14 back into the UK economy for every £1 invested in research. In the last five years we’ve spun out six companies and attracted four businesses to Norwich. Our flagship national UK wheat programme includes all UK wheat breeders, to ensure our world-leading science has an impact on our daily bread.
