Scott Bader Innovation Centre is dedicated to maintaining a positive community for Northamptonshire’s science and technology businesses to work and excel. With so many businesses under one roof, collaboration is both common and encouraged between companies.

The centre was created as part of Scott Bader’s commitment to giving back to the community, generating new jobs, ideas and inspiration in the local area. In fact, for one full day each year, all Scott Bader employees down tools and get involved in local work for the community.
