Exeter Initiative for Science and Technology (ExIST)

The ExIST group was founded by Exeter Chamber of Commerce and Industry in association with Exeter’s leading research and development organisations. The group has come together to showcase science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine in Exeter.  We aim to represent and assist private sector innovation and so far, the response has been better than we could have hoped. 

The Steering Group for ExIST comprises representatives from some of the most high profile organisations and innovative businesses in the area.  Furthermore ExIST’s work will complement Exeter’s City of Science initiative which strives to raise Exeter’s profile as an internationally renowned location and gateway for excellence in science, research and innovation.

Our ultimate goal is to make Exeter an even better place to do business for Science and Technology companies and organisations.  We are approaching this goal in a number of ways.
