Join the Innovation Sector Hubs

Come and find out more about how the hubs work, access to funding, benefits for your research and meet the teams behind the hubs at the very first Hubs Information Fairs on 12 and 13 June.


Supported by over £6M of investment and launched in 2012, the University’s Innovation Sector Hubs provide a more focussed and strategic approach to the way we work with industry and other external partners across 14 distinct sectors.

From cultural and creative to medical technologies, energy to professional services, they enable us to address increasingly complex problems requiring multidisciplinary approaches that combine our major research strengths.

The Hub approach is challenge driven, applying research excellence to issues of national and international importance. Above all it ensures our research is relevant to industry and external partners – because by collaborating we can focus on developing practical solutions to real needs based on world-class research.
