A new innovation center for high-tech small firms in the Midlands, which will help create 750 jobs for people in the local area, is being opened today (26 October 2015) by Business Minister Anna Soubry.

The Advanced Technology Innovation Center is based at Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park (LUSEP), which received £2 million of government funding in a City Deal to pave the way for the center.

It meets the needs of growing businesses by offering flexible working spaces including workshops, labs and studios, and is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Companies already using the facilities at the innovation center include Nemaura Pharma, which designs new ways to deliver medicines using nanotechnology, Segura Systems, which supplies software to retailers to increase transparency in supply chains, and ELUXI, which specializes in lasers and optics.
