Here East, London’s 1.2 million square foot digital and creative campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is to become home to Europe’s largest Technology Innovation Centre.

The centre will house innovative companies, big and small, and provide a wide range of services to support new product development, business growth, and collaboration. Services will include bespoke accelerator and incubation programmes, practical intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship education, specialised prototyping facilities, a suite of back-office & professional services, and a state-of-the-art technology lab. In addition, access to a range of funding opportunities, will enable member companies to scale across the UK and beyond.

The centre will run programmes and activities throughout 2016 with founding partners and sponsors, and a soft launch event is planned for October 2017. Initially, the centre will span 68,000 square feet. At full occupancy, the centre will support up to 500 on-site members and organisations, and has capacity to spin-out scaling firms into other space across the estate. It is set to open fully in January 2017.
