— collaboration space — brand new purpose designed innovation facility containing extensive communal and bookable space in which to chat over coffee or lunch, (hot desk for collaboration space users), network, share information, generate ideas, meet privately and hold seminars.
Relationship management — easy access to a huge range of experts, equipment and other support including finance/funding facilitated by an experienced innovation development team.
Community — a vibrant and inspiring innovation community.
The proposals for this new build dedicated and purpose designed UIEC include concept designs for incubation laboratories and offices, university innovation staff space, collaboration space, lecture theatre and cafe together with landscape proposals for the adjacent space.
