The AIR Building consists of two spaces; the upper floor is home for the Vice-Chancellor’s office and support team, the Business & Innovation, Research & Development and External Funding teams. This floor also incorporates the Launchpad Studio – home to the award-winning, post-graduate incubation and acceleration programme that creates new digital businesses. The Launchpad programme delivery team are currently based in the AIR building along with some of the businesses which have formed from the first cohort of Launchpad students. In early 2019, the Launchpad Studio will move to the purpose-built Launchpad building which is attached to AIR via the connecting Creative Bridge building.
The lower floor of the AIR building - Open AIR – is an open-plan space configured to provide a focus on our three overarching Research & Innovation themes and their eleven underpinning R&I programmes, as well as stimulating Open Innovation more generally.
Funding was provided by the European Regional Development Fund
