business sectors

Swansea is not only a crucible for new ideas, business research and development, and creative developments, being home to the Institute of Sustainable Design at the University of Wales, but is also a city which applies innovation to the values and traditions of its cultural and commercial history.

Key industry sectors reflect the corroborative research and specialist subjects of the universities, and the ambition of Swansea to grow as a ‘Science City’. Industry sectors represented and actively growing include: high end creative industries, ITC (building on the new Institute of Advanced Telecommunications at Swansea University), Life Sciences (again strongly represented by the Institute of Life Sciences at the University), Marine industries, Professional business services, Precision Engineering, Tourism and Health.
