Life at Canon

At Canon Medical Research Europe, we understand that life isn’t just about research and coding (though we do love those!). We believe in fostering a vibrant community where our brilliant minds can thrive both inside and outside the research zone.

Get to work on your bike with our cycling scheme, get involved in some of our monthly wellbeing prompts to support your self-care, get active with a session of rock climbing or try your hand at sushi-making – our Social Comittee will make sure you get plenty of opportunities to discover everything that life at Canon has to offer.
