Olympic Legacy Park
The Olympic Legacy Park (OLP) forms an important part of the Innovation District; creating a world class research and innovation environment for the production of new products, processes and services in healthcare technologies, sports and exercise medicine. The £14 million Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre (AWRC), with research partners including Sheffield Hallam University, Toshiba and Westfield Health, emulates the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre’s (AMRC’s) successful model of university-industry collaboration.
The AWRC will become the most advanced research and development centre for physical activity in the world and presents exciting opportunities for local businesses to further develop their specialisms through the creation of commercial solutions for global healthcare markets.
