We are Innovation in Action

The University of Warwick is a thriving Russell Group University. With 30,000 students and a top 10 place in the UK, it is uniquely placed to bring together research and teaching excellence with entrepreneurship. Powered by the University of Warwick, and open to all, the Warwick Innovation District is a large, open innovation ecosystem that stretches from the University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire, through Leamington to Wellesbourne.

We bring together academics, businesses, founders, and investors, to start, scale and pivot businesses, while helping students gain the opportunity to experiment with creative and critical thinking. Our passion is to see our region prosper.


How do we support you, your business
and the region?

We caught up with Chief Innovation Officer David Plumb,
