A focus on science, technology & innovation for the business community
The Exeter Initiative for Science and Technology (ExIST) is a sub-group of Exeter Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The Initiative was founded in June 2011 by a group of business leaders in Exeter and the surrounding area. The Initiative aims to optimise interaction between science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) businesses trading in the area, to increase awareness of Exeter as a centre of science and technology, to build relationships between education at all levels and business and to encourage investment in the STEMM industries in the region.
