Zernike Group was formed in order to run the Zernike Science Park attached to the University of Groningen in the north of The Netherlands. The management proved successful and activities extended both to managing other science parks and to investing in young technology companies in Holland, elsewhere in continental Europe and Australia. Zernike (UK) Limited was formed in late 2000 to develop operations in the UK.
Whilst the smooth and efficient running of any multi-occupancy, serviced facility is important it is our belief that a unique part of the value added in any Zernike managed complex is the access to our network of specialist and international connections. At Normanby Gateway we want tenants to feel that they can share business issues with us and, whilst we may not have an immediate answer, there is a good chance that we can point them in the right direction or make in introduction in the UK or elsewhere than will be of practical assistance.
As well as managing technology-oriented building complexes and science parks, Zernike also invests in start up ventures both directly and through funds which it manages. In addition we have considerable expertise in stimulating economic development and so have an active consultancy in this sphere.
