The Higgs Centre for Innovation aims to create new market opportunities whilst also inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers.


The Centre will be built at STFC’s UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UK ATC).

Working in partnership with the University of Edinburgh, the Centre will house up to 12 small businesses, as well as academic and PhD posts, to provide PhD students the opportunity to gain entrepreneurial experience as they start their research careers.
