Business Incubator and Innovation

Business Incubator and Innovation

To move forward, you need new ideas, new solutions and a new approach to success. At Buckinghamshire New University, we offer businesses practical support and fantastic spaces to innovate and problem solve.

Over the last decade, we’ve invested over £100 million in our facilities. From medical simulation suites to event and exhibition spaces, we have something to benefit your business.

If you’re interested in hiring a space, get in touch with Florin Ioras, Enterprise and Research Director.

The BNU Alliance Fund

The BNU Alliance Fund offers grants of up to £8,000 for collaborative projects between Buckinghamshire New University and external partners.

Successful projects will explore how academic knowledge from the university can be applied in innovative ways within an industry context. We are pleased to support projects that have a commercial focus, aiming to support the development of new product ideas in line with your business strategy.

Organisations of all sectors are eligible to apply.  Projects must include at least one BNU academic or member of staff and at least one external partner.  Partners can be organisations who have worked with the university before or may be brand new to BNU. Projects can be designed to apply existing knowledge in a novel way or to collaboratively explore new research areas.

Our ambition for the BNU Alliance Fund is to support partnerships that will have a long lasting impact externally within industry and within BNU. 

This fund is now closed for applications. Please check back for future rounds.
