Innovation Centre

The Innovation Centre will give our partners the support they need to make great ideas a reality.

The Centre will be home to people and facilities that help turn great ideas into growth across Wales and beyond.

Globally connected, the vibrant hub will nurture partnerships between entrepreneurs, business leaders, professional advisers, academics and students.

Equipped with shared spaces, labs and serviced offices, the Centre will work hand-in-hand with business, from start-ups through to established companies. World-leading academics will be based in the 12,000m2 building, offering businesses access to expertise from across the University. Located in the heart of Cardiff, the Centre will feature a range of new facilities that allow innovation to flourish.

Located at Maindy Park in the heart of Cardiff, the Centre will feature a range of new facilities that will allow innovation to flourish:

  • 2,400m² flexible lettable office space from11m² to 115m²
  • formal and informal meeting space with high-end conference facilities
  • access to professional high-street advisors
  • dedicated co-working space for student/graduate entrepreneurs
  • joint exhibition/presentation areas
  • 500m² wet lab space (including individual and shared fume cupboards)
  • high-speed broadband
  • café
  • hot-desking and co-working areas
  • central reception
  • conference/event space for up to 200 people
  • access at competitive rates to University services and facilities.

By its very nature, innovation involves risk and uncertainty. The Innovation Centre will mitigate both by promoting an inclusive and collaborative ethos of innovation.
