Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has announced the opening of its new Queen Mary Enterprise life science innovation space.
Situated close to the Whitechapel, East London campus, it is part-subsidised by the award of a £1.5 million share of the £20 million investment into 20 University Enterprise Zone from Research England, part of UK Research and Innovation.
Divided into hot desk, co-working and individual offices to support early-stage start-up companies, as well to drive economic growth and health outcomes in Tower Hamlets, England’s third most deprived local authority.
The site has been designed to help early-stage AI and health firms in line with the university's strategy to foster innovation and creativity.
President and Principal of Queen Mary University Professor Colin Bailey said: “We are delighted to welcome Queen Mary Enterprise to our stable of world-leading life science operations. The new space again highlights our focus to foster innovation, creativity and collaboration at scale from our world leading research and innovation.”
