Forward thinking

Co-located with the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, at the heart of the main UWE Bristol campus, Future Space will drive the University’s ambitions to prepare students with entrepreneurial skills, spark collaboration between UWE researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs and commercialise the latest research.

Professor Steve West, UWE Bristol Vice-Chancellor and President, said, “This is the latest venture that sets us apart as a technology-based university focused on generating opportunities for business growth and collaboration.

“There is no doubt in my mind that fostering an entrepreneurial atmosphere on our campus is a win for our students and our research community, as we know that by collaborating and nurturing business we create a climate of innovation that has a ripple effect.”
