Part-funded by the Oxford and Oxfordshire City Deal, the new building was officially opened on March 17th 2017 at Begbroke Science Park (BSP), by Nicola Blackwood MP, Minister for Public Health and Innovation.

An extension to Begbroke’s Centre for Innovation and Enterprise, the new multi-use building will help small and medium-sized science businesses to take their projects to market. The building which has had significant interest and is already 60 per cent occupied, will also provide facilities for researchers from the University developing new innovative products and technologies. The site’s primary focus will be on the advanced engineering sectors of automotive, nuclear materials, advanced materials, robotics, as well as in nano-medicine, pharmaceuticals, energy storage and supercomputing.
