Buckinghamshire receives £1.3m funding for a Digital Innovation Hub

The University Campus Aylesbury Vale (UCAV) has received £1.3m from Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (BTVLEP) to create a Digital Innovation Hub to support business innovation and growth in Bucks.

The aim for creating the Hub is to make UCAV a centre for start-up businesses in the digital sector, with facilities including a cyber-security suite and virtual reality engineering design studio.

The Campus is designed to allow small and early-stage high-growth businesses to access advice, support and incubation spaces and enjoy use of the wider facilities and opportunities offered at Bucks New University and Aylesbury College, who have partnered for the creation of the campus.

The development will incorporate a business service to meet graduate level skills gaps and a technical design facility to support the development of technical businesses and inspire the region’s young people to consider careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.
