Surrey secures funding for Digital Innovation Centre for Animal Health
Surrey Business School forms part of a unique partnership which combines animal health, digital innovation and business collaboration.
The University of Surrey and The Pirbright Institute have been awarded £1.2 million funding for a new project which will enable scientific researchers and businesses to work together and help establish the area as internationally-recognised for animal health.
The Surrey Centre for the Digital Economy (CoDE) at Surrey Business School will be working in close collaboration with The Pirbright Institute, the University’s School of Veterinary Medicine and 5G Innovation Centre to develop a Digital Innovation Centre for Animal Health which will promote new approaches to the collection and use of data.
The project, funded by Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) will provide facilities and processes to enable researchers, visiting scientists, academics and commercial partners to work together to develop projects and secure collaborations, support and funding.
