United Life Sciences (ULS) is a strategic partnership representing over 1100 life science and healthcare organisations across the UK and internationally. The partnership was formed by four Founding Partners: the BioIndustry Association (BIA), Bionow, BioPartner UK and One Nucleus (ON) in 2014 and MediWales joined in 2015.
The ULS collaboration has member and the wider UK life science sector 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. Read the joint Press Release at the BIA website.
ULS has hosted a number of joint events both in the UK and overseas and 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 check with your membership organisation for details.
