During the 1960s, the Government urged UK universities to forge closer links with new high-tech industries. As a result the Mott Committee recommended that ‘science based industry’ should be developed and encouraged to locate close to Cambridge and its centre of scientific excellence. In 1970, Trinity College – guided by its then Senior Bursar, Dr John Bradfield – decided to use its own land and funds to provide a favourable location to house and encourage the success of local hi-tech industry and attract overseas investment.
