    Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Brunel. Across all our disciplines, from business to sport and engineering, our focus is on nurturing new ideas to make them market-ready.


    Project example

    Astudio is an award winning architectural practice which designs buildings with a low carbon footprint. Co-Innovate offered assistance in developing the roadmap for building product development capacity and growth by providing the link with the right combination of skills, knowledge and resources. "Two of Brunel final year undergraduate Business students worked along with two Design students generating ideas, products and market solutions of real value to the company. We have been fully supported throughout by Co-Innovate and hope to see this tripartite collaboration continue"
