Welcome - Innovation Space is the University’s co-working space for business. It is not just office space. Innovation Space is a place where businesses can gain new knowledge, develop and grow. Innovation spaces can exist anywhere in the University and wider region, however our headquarters and home is in Halpern House on Hampshire Terrace. From here, all Innovation Space activity is managed. You can read more about our ethos on this website.
Member Driven – Innovation Space is driven by its members. Our four floors of differing businesses and activities all have representatives that are part of the Innovation Space Board. This board meets monthly to guide the University’s management of the space and input into the services provided there. As a space it is constantly evolving with our members, to provide the best business development space that we can.
Facilities for Business - Our centre contains a dedicated reception and networking space, meeting rooms, boardrooms and video conference facilities. We have developed three floors that provide space for established businesses, academic departments, students, University alumni, local entrepreneurs and start-ups. Details and availability of bookable spaces is available online here.
News – On Monday 10th February the University’s Executive Board gave approval to proceed with harmonising all the services at the Innovation Space under one organisation. This will allow the organisation to further improve and act upon the Innovation Space Board’s direction to grow the project. Further information will be communicated to members in the coming weeks, should you have questions, queries or ideas, please speak to reception or get in touch.
