Plans from Nottingham Trent University for a new Enterprise Innovation Centre (EIC) in the city centre of Nottingham to the north of the Dryden Building have been approved.

NTU Enterprise Centre

The EIC will be built on what is currently a brownfield site and will offer space for student, graduate and academic enterprise, be a base for academic-business teaching and research, and act as a centre for business support in the city.

The new building will provide 2000m2 of gross internal floor area for the University.

A design statement from the University said: “The EIC will form a major building block of the University’s Enterprise Action Plan and will be a key enabler of many elements within the University’s strategic plan – Creating the University of the Future.

“The EIC will provide the focus for all the University’s enterprise activities and will create a dynamic learning environment where student and graduate entrepreneurs can interact
and collaborate with academics, researchers, small growing businesses and larger companies.

“The development is designed to accommodate University start-ups and spin-outs, as well as in-movers from elsewhere attracted by the high-quality space and business support offer.”
