Future Space is part of the West of England University Enterprise Zone, lead by UWE Bristol. This means that Future Space companies can benefit from short and long term support of students, academics, equipment and research projects. Through our Innovation Director you can make strong connections into the University and provide opportunities to their students through research and internship opportunities and access to cutting edge research, expertise and facilities. Future Space is one of very few Innovation Centres with this support on our door step and this benefit has seen companies in the centre grow their company more quickly.
