When & Where
Digital Innovation is a digital doorway to everything digital that is going on in and around Manchester Metropolitan University.
It’s about Education, Research and Business. It’s about what people in all the faculties around the university – from Art and Design to Computer Science – are doing in the digital space.
There is barely a course, which is not heavily touched by digital, and Digital Innovation will reflect it all. We’ll also take in all the new digital businesses in the university’s entrepreneurial center, Innospace. Plus we’ll join in the wider digital community and conversation in Manchester and beyond.
Digital Innovation has its own team, but everyone – staff, students, alumni, visitors, companies we are engaged with – is welcome to participate in the conversations we will create.
