Funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, BBSRC – part of UK Research and Innovation and Aberystwyth University, the Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus is set to be the largest development of its kind in Wales in recent years.

Building upon Aberystwyth University’s strengths and celebrated research expertise, the new campus will offer a range of high-quality facilities to support innovation, enabling commercial enterprises to grow, prosper and drive economic growth in the food and drink, biotechnology and agri-tech sectors. Facilities will include an Advanced Analysis Centre, Biorefining Centre, Future Food Centre, and Seed Biobank. It will also provide formal and informal meeting areas and workshop and laboratory space for companies wanting to innovate to develop new products and services.

Professor Elizabeth Treasure, Vice-Chancellor of Aberystwyth University said:

“Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus is an exceptional development that will bring new industry partnerships and jobs to the region. It is an example of the University working collaboratively to ensure that the excellent research carried out here – particularly within our Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) – acts as a catalyst for innovative practice which has an impact on the wider economy.’’

With a gross internal floor area of over 7,400m2, the impressive campus will feature a series of interconnected buildings. The building elevations will utilise a variety of external materials including brick, timber, and living walls and roof.
