15 March 2022
Bipsync, which provides leading research management software, is the first partner to take residence in the University’s new home for social science research, business, spinouts and start-ups.
“We are immensely excited that sbarc|spark is the new home of Bipsync’s UK operations,” said Craig Marvelley, VP of Engineering at Bipsync.
“It offers us the opportunity to strengthen our ties with Cardiff University and their exceptional students, engage more closely with other innovative companies in a collaborative setting, and continue to grow our team in a truly inspiring environment.”
Taking space in sbarc|spark brings the company alongside expert academics from Cardiff’s Social Science Research Park (SPARK), and potential collaborators in the University’s new spinout hub - Cardiff Innovations@sbarc|spark.
Located on Cardiff Innovation Campus, sbarc|spark also provides proximity to Abacws, the University’s new home for the School of Computer Science and Informatics and the School of Mathematics.
Professor Damian Walford Davies, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said: “We are delighted to welcome Bipsync into our sbarc|spark family. The company specializes in using modern technologies, agile processes, and user-centered design to drive speed, agility, quality, and efficiency – values that align with our own ethos: igniting knowledge, disrupting orthodoxies and seeking new synergies.”
sbarc|spark – Cardiff’s #HomeofInnovation - brings together researchers, entrepreneurs, student start-ups and academic spinouts in a state-of-the-art building at the heart of Cardiff Innovation Campus.
Featuring collaborative working spaces, a visualisation centre, auditorium and fabrication lab, the hub provides the seedbed in which Wales can nurture and grow tomorrow’s big ideas as the UK recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, with dedicated space for student entrepreneurs.
The centre is the largest innovation facility of its kind in Wales, featuring 12,000m sq of floor space across six storeys, with commercial units and lab spaces for spinouts and start-ups.
The building brings benefits to the local community. The ground floor will be a public open space with a café, a flexible auditorium for TEDx-style events and an open staircase – the 'Oculus' - designed to drive social engagements and collaborations.
