A fully-equipped lab facility

The lab has all the kit you need for the development, prototyping and testing of products and services that address global challenges such as environmental matters and sustainability, or that might benefit local communities through social innovation.

Established companies who engage in corporate innovation with dedicated teams can use the space, as it is ideal for innovation teams to work up proofs of concept and prototypes. We also welcome entrepreneurs and start-ups with their own novel or disruptive technology.

Your outsourced innovation partner

Our team can work on projects for you – undertaking feasibility & concept evaluations, working on design & prototyping, and identifying manufacturing partners and distributors. If you are a manufacturer, we can do third-party design of parts and products for your clients that are fit for both of your requirements.

Electronics equipment

Everything you need to create an impact

From 3D printers, to mills and drills, Raspberry Pi and virtual reality, plus the latest digital media kit, cameras and much more – you’ll find everything at the Innovation Lab to help you develop and test your products.
