The Bioinnovation Hub along with our new facility, Scalebase, form the Oxford Brookes Enterprise Centre. This centre will give companies access to office spaces, lab benches, experts and professional networks. The project aims to support the creation of at least 17 start-up companies and 74 jobs over a five year period.

The centre is perfectly situated to capitalise on Oxfordshire’s dense network of research, knowledge-intensive businesses and skilled workers – essential to a successful innovation ecosystem.
Professor Linda King, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Research and Global Partnerships at Oxford Brookes University said:

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to host high growth start-ups in the Enterprise Centre who will be positively contributing to the student experience at Oxford Brookes. With opportunities to speak in lectures, mentor student businesses and host expert clinics we plan to develop a thriving ecosystem of learning and teaching through the Enterprise Centre.”
