Our strong maker culture puts collaboration at the heart of our everything we do

Associate Programme

Our Associate Programme offers membership of our Innovation Studio to regional businesses seeking research and development support.

The programme offers your business six-months of access to our in-house Lab 4 Creative Technologies and industry-standard resources, along with a programme of executive-level workshops, ideal for upskilling.

We're happy to tailor membership to suit your business needs: whether it’s an introduction to Virtual Reality, designing for real-time visualisation, additive manufacturing, or experimenting in new materials and processes such as digital textiles and 3D body scanning.

We particularly welcome enquiries from businesses that wish to collaborate and create value with us through research, knowledge exchange and learning enrichment activities.

Get in touch with us for more information and to see if your business is eligible to join the programme.
