Innovation Central
The planned spark building

We are committed to fostering economic growth and social progress in Wales, reinforcing our civic responsibility. We are experts at turning our world-leading research into commercial success, responsible for 96.8% of all intellectual property profit generated by Welsh universities.

Ranked in the top 10 UK HEIs for the number of knowledge transfer programmes, our innovations and expertise have helped manufacturing and businesses, medical and healthcare sectors and the cultural industries improve their performance, processes and sustainability.

Our students are being encouraged to create jobs, not just seek jobs. Through work-based experience, industry-focused degree programmes, and management and executive education, we will provide a steady stream of highly-skilled graduates to businesses in Wales and beyond. Our enterprising graduates have established 135 start-up companies in the last four years.

Places for sharing ideas

Our Innovation Campus is transforming our working culture, creating a hub for research and development activity in Wales. Our emphasis on the social value of innovation is reflected in our creation of the world's first social science research park.

International partnerships

We will continue to connect industry with our academics, tackling the needs of businesses and accelerating the translation of our innovations into new products and technologies, services, spin-outs and start-ups in Wales and globally.
