Cardiff University Innovation Centre

Delivering a supportive and collaborative environment, the Innovation Centre will provide our key partners with the space they need to innovate.

Globally connected, the Innovation Centre will provide a vibrant hub where entrepreneurs, business leaders, professional advisors, academics, and students can collaborate.

Inside the new Innovation Centre

A supportive space

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 business leaders 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:

  • 2,400m2 flexible lettable office space from 11m2 to 115m2
  • Formal and informal meeting space with high-end conference facilities
  • Access to a professional high-street of advisers
  • Joint exhibition and presentation areas
  • 500m2 wet lab space, including individual and shared fume cupboards
  • High-speed broadband
  • CafĂ©
  • Hot-desking and co-working areas
  • Central reception
  • Conference and event space for up to 200 people
  • Access at competitive rates to our 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.
