Keele University Science and Innovation Park.
The development and implementation of digital technologies will be central to society and the economy for the foreseeable future. Beyond the technology lies data that will be collected on almost every aspect of our work and personal lives. This data needs to be handled securely and ethically then analysed in such a way that it provides accurate reflections to provide digital solutions. If done well, this promises to enhance the lives of our communities in a vast array of ways, including our health, wealth and happiness.
Keele has expertise in key aspects of data analytics right across the University and we aim to harness these to develop and support small to medium sized enterprises. We intend to create a community of experts, researchers and businesses, centred physically and virtually around a new purpose-built facility within the Keele Science and Innovation Park.
Innovation Centre 7 (IC7) within the Keele Growth Corridor University Enterprise Zone will provide a physical focus for the intersection and collaboration between existing and future groups and initiatives within the University as well as providing a touch point (and physical home for some) organisations and initiatives that interact with our data and analytics expertise. Together this community will develop and apply data to make a significant difference to society and the economy.
Main reasons for decision not to subdivide contract into lots: given the need for one main contractor to co-ordinate the delivery of the design and build of Innovation Centre 7 (IC7) covering all of the design services and construction works required to deliver the project, the contract has not been subdivided into lots.
