Innovation Spaces

RGU has created a network of creative & working spaces for our student and alumni innovators & entrepreneurs, as well as startups, mentors and staff to collaborate, co-work and learn with a positive culture of innovation.

RGU Innovation Station at Garthdee Campus

A new combined co-working and training space was launched in August 2018 on the university campus, to support students in ideation, creativity and innovation. This space is managed by the RGU Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group (EIG) who will also support staff and students with their startup ideas. This space is also used specifically during the RGU Startup Accelerator programme.

RGU Startup Station at ONE Tech Hub

In collaboration with partners Opportunity North East (ONE) and CodeBase, the new ONE Tech Hub opened in June 2019 in the University‚Äôs historic Schoolhill facility which is based in the center of Aberdeen city. This location will help to drive digital and entrepreneurship activities in the region to support new company creation and growth and create a new generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. The RGU Creative Accelerator Programme is based there as is the Aberdeen Innovation Mentors (AIM) group. Startup teams  from the RGU Startup Accelerator programme take co-working space here when the first six months of their year-long programme ends each summer.
