University of Nottingham Innovation Park

Client Challenges

The University of Nottingham wanted to look at securing space and facilities to work alongside businesses working in the digital sector and asked its Innovation Park company to support the initiative – who in turn needed advice around likely business need and how best to build soft infrastructure that can support the work sustainably.

Our Solutions

Creative Places helped with the appraisal of locational options in Nottingham – for a place that enables the University to showcase its work in the City Centre whilst also developing the digital skills of the local community and providing a place for entrepreneurship and business growth.


The University has been progressing work jointly with a stakeholder group that includes the City Council, KPMG and Blenheim Chalcot and the Research Park team has been able to link into this in a way that works for both itself, the University and the University’s partners.
