About Exist and Insight

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 region.  The group aims to support STEMM organisations and businesses around Exeter by developing and encouraging networks to share information and advice.

ExIST Insight is the newsletter for the Initiative.  Its aim is to increase recognition of the number and range of STEMM organisations in Exeter and its wider region, and to help support and promote them both locally and nationally.

ISSUE 01

WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT THE VERY FIRST ISSUE OF ExIST INSIGHT.

In 5 short years ExIST has grown from a notion - to start a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) group in Exeter - to an organisation with a proven record of promoting and supporting science and technology activities in our region.

We now felt it was the right time to start publicising the work of some of the exciting organisations operating in and around Exeter and to create something that highlights how many science and technology opportunities exist around us

We would like to thank those who have contributed to this first issue and we would welcome ideas and articles for future issues so we can share your events and news. Please tell us what is going on and we will help you to get your messages out to our STEMM community.

We are only able to continue ExIST, our publications and events, through the continued support of our sponsors, help from Exeter Chamber, and the outstanding contributions of our Steering Group. I cannot thank them all enough for what they do to support ExIST.

I hope you enjoy this first issue as much as we have enjoyed putting it together.
