Situated alongside the University of Huddersfield, we promote collaboration between the University and industry to create value, business growth and R&D opportunities. Campus facilities, such as a gym and food and drink outlets are also in close proximity.
A subsidiary of the University of Huddersfield, the 3M BIC is named after business leader Sir George Buckley, born in Yorkshire, a graduate and PhD of the University of Huddersfield and former Chairman, President and CEO of the multi-national 3M corporation known as a world-leader in innovation.
Innovation Avenue runs through the heart of the building, where businesses can access cutting-edge technology and advisory support for product design, prototyping and product verification.
With our in-house design engineering capabilities, we offer a holistic and bespoke approach to problem-solving, co-creating innovative products or components from an idea to early stage production right through to commercialisation.
