Behind-the-scenes @ Molecular Sciences Research Hub, White City Campus
Members visited this key platform for innovation, entrepreneurship and multidisciplinary research
Professor Oscar Ces - Head of Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London, playing a pivotal role in establishing Imperial’s White City Campus.
This unique visit started with a welcome by Professor Ces, an overview of the move of the Department’s research to the campus in 2018 and a tour of some of its state-of-the-art facilities housed within the Molecular Sciences Research Hub.
Participants had the opportunity to see some of the other innovation spaces based on this £1Bn campus including the IHUB and ScaleSpace, which together provide tailor-made labs and offices for start-ups, spinouts and scale-ups as they grow.
There was also the opportunity to showcase the Imperial College Advanced Hackspace which provides rapid prototyping, modelling, and fabrication spaces that support users to bring their entrepreneurial ideas to life.
