Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth Business Park
Growth Deal funding up to £2,800,000
The joint University Business Park seeks to unlock a prime development site for business use, further expansion of the universities and, in line with the Witty Review 2013, place the universities and businesses in close dialogue and proximity to ‘move from mind to factory’ (Witty 2013).
The strengths of both Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth are already well known across a wide range of productive sectors. In particular, they shine in the creative and digital sectors, where they also have international reputations for applying their knowledge to other discipline/sector strengths, such as health and social care, tourism, science and technology.
The growth deal investment will be used to accelerate these proposals with respect to the areas of business incubation and infrastructure, both of which are fundamental to the early stages of development for this scheme.
