Regent Innovation Hub

All good business concepts, revolutionary technology and even lifesaving medicine, begin as an idea. The Regent Innovation Hub works with its staff, students and organisations to turn knowledge and ideas into solutions that benefit everyone.

About the project

Our highly competitive Regent Innovation Hub challenge is an annual eight-week programme aimed at students with inspiring business ideas. The basis of this project is to create and develop a new entrepreneurial idea or further develop an existing product or service.

Applications for 2023 are now closed.
