United Life Sciences

United Life Science (ULS) is a strategic partnership representing over 1000 life science and healthcare organisations across the UK and internationally. The partnership was formed by four founding partners: the BioIndustry Association (BIA), Bionow, BioPartner and One Nucleus in 2014.

The ULS collaboration has member and the wider UK life science sector benefit at the heart of its purpose and is the basis for all joint activities. We strive to avoid duplication of effort and coordinate the founders’ activities whilst recognising each other’s areas of strength so that member companies can benefit from more effective and coherent sector support.

Between 2012 and 2014 ULS worked informally together on a range of activities – including the creation and publication of a UK Life Science Manifesto 2015 – 2020 which is aimed at all political parties. This Manifesto sets out what we and our members believe is required for the future health and wealth of the UK during the next parliament. Vitally, ULS hosted a series of UK wide roadshows polling our members on their key issues leading to the production of the Manifesto which makes policy recommendations to Government.

ULS have already hosted a number of joint events both in the UK and overseas and going forward we will be undertaking further joint initiatives plus providing cost effective attendance at each other’s events to maximise the international impact of the UK. Discounts are available to each other’s members for 3 of each of our major events so please do check with your membership organisation for details.

Over the coming months we anticipate that the representatives on ULS will grow to further enhance the benefits to life science companies and UK plc.
