RoCRE is based on the beautiful, rural 400ha Rothamsted site in Harpenden, just 30 miles north of London.
RoCRE manages the Daniel Hall Innovation Centre, the Rothamsted Conference Centre and the Lawes Open Innovation Hub alongside Rothamsted Research, the longest running agricultural research station in the world, providing cutting-edge science and innovation for over 170 years.
In addition to RoCRE’s facilities, the site consists of large field trial systems (primarily wheat research) and a series of state-of the art facilities for plant bioscience including modern lab space and facilities for bioimaging, microscopy, molecular analysis, metabolomics, proteomics, over 1000m2 of glasshouse space, an environment-controlled building with 16 cabinets and eight growth rooms, containment facilities and an insectary unit that features the UK's most extensive aphid collection. Rothamsted also houses a unique experimental system and an archive of soil and plant samples which has been running continuously since 1844.
