Progressive ideas and innovation helped power the industrial revolution in the UK. Today, innovation is a key driver at Protos.

Through collaboration with the University of Chester’s Thornton Science Park, Protos provides a supportive environment where ideas can come to life. Thornton offers world-class facilities; access to knowledge and expertise; and ‘incubator’ spaces where innovative enterprises can develop.

With Government support and financial backing from the European Regional Development Fund, Thornton Science Park is well-placed to be at the forefront of innovation in the energy, environment, engineering and advanced manufacturing sectors.

Building on this direct link between industry and education, Protos can be a place where concepts are taken from inception through to development; demonstration and large-scale application at one strategic location.
