This £300m project to transform a disused railway yard into an innovative research space is already well underway, with two facilities open and work starting on a further two buildings.

The first stage of the Innovation Campus saw the completion of the Hadyn Ellis building and the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC).

The latest £135m stage will see two new centres of excellence opening, Innovation Central and the Translational Research Facility. Official openings are due in 2019.

We also have plans for a footbridge to connect the Innovation Campus to the Cathays Campus near the Business School, which will benefit students, staff and the local community.
