As a NETPark tenant, aXenic plays an active part in the NETPark innovation network and has benefited from access to networking opportunities at NETPark’s regular events and breakfast briefing sessions, and access to regional expertise on subjects such finance, skills and operations. 

Steve Clements, CEO of aXenic, said: ‘Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world class expertise from Durham University’. 

The company has worked closely with Durham University to conduct further research and development around their technology.
