Keele University Plans to Invest in New Multi-Million Pound Facility
Jan 30 18
Keele University announced two major new investments on its campus this 2018. The University announced plans to invest in a new multi-million pound facility that houses both Keele Management School and incubated companies in a sector leading Smart Innovation Hub. The new Management School has been funded by the University and the Denise Coates Foundation, after which the new iconic building at the entrance to the University will be named. The Smart Innovation Hub has been funded by the University, Staffordshire County Council, UK Government Growth Deal Funding and the European Regional Development Fund, the latter two sourced via the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership. University and Denise Coates Foundation funds will be used to create teaching and learning facilities for staff and students. Via co-location alongside the Smart Innovation Hub, students and staff will also have the opportunity to work collaboratively with entrepreneurs and business owners in the new Smart Innovation Hub, designed to support the creation and growth of new businesses and encourage more innovation-led business growth. The unique environment also aims to stimulate a new more collaborative approach to business and management research which will benefit businesses locally and globally. This new investment in the Management School will underpin a planned substantial growth in student numbers over the next five years. This investment will play a key role enabling the University to continue its commitment to widening participation in higher education for people locally, a key priority of the funding from the Denise Coates Foundation. The Smart Innovation Hub alongside the Management School will provide accommodation to support the creation and growth of innovation-led businesses, alongside major new facilities to enable the University to grow its established programme of collaborative research, development and innovation support to local firms. By 2021 and as a result of the new Smart Innovation Hub facilities, the University will grow its established programme of business support accessed via its dedicated Business Gateway, by an additional 300 business collaborations, leading to the creation of at least 80 new high value jobs. An independent appraisal signals that investment in facilities and programme of business-collaboration will contribute an additional pound sterling50 million to the local economy by 2033.
