East Anglia's Children's Hospices
To learn more about EACH and its important work, please take the time to watch Tallulah’s story.
We are delighted to be continuing our support of EACH, as originally nominated by our Cambridge-based colleagues; to fulfil our promise to them at a time when they really do need our support more than ever. We hope to make a significant impact on those in our community who rely so heavily on EACH for vital support at the hardest of times.
We want to inspire the next generation of scientists through our STEM outreach programme, and by our student apprenticeship and graduate placement programmes. In Cambridge we are in partnership with many organisations as well as shaping and delivering science activities and programmes to local schools and colleges
As part of our relationship with the Cambridge Judge Business School, we support a number of programmes run by the Business School’s Entrepreneurship Centre. This includes Accelerate Cambridge, which is an initiative designed to further engage, train and mentor fledgling life science businesses. Over 60 colleagues from AstraZeneca are now involved in the programme and over 75 start-ups have benefitted so far.
Our strategic collaboration with the Lucy Cavendish College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, supports our common goals of advancing women in science and business leadership. We provide one-to-one mentoring to students, supporting their scientific projects as well as career and personal development, and offer work placement opportunities in the life sciences sector, including at our global hub in Cambridge.
We support the new bio-incubator and life science accelerator at the Babraham Research Campus in Cambridge by offering new life-science ventures, one-to-one mentoring and entrepreneurial guidance.
Panacea Stars is a life and health sciences accelerator programme by Panacea Innovation that aims to enable bio-entrepreneurs turn their scientific ideas into marketable products. We support the scheme providing business mentors who are coupled with a team for eight weeks to help develop their business plan. The programme culminates in a final pitching competition in Oxford where a winner of the programme will be chosen.
