The Translation & Innovation Hub (I-HUB)

The Translation & Innovation Hub (I-HUB) provides space for companies to work alongside Imperial researchers and turn scientific and technological innovations into new products and services.

Its facilities support businesses large and small, including start-ups and fast-growth companies as well as established biotech and scientific research organisations.

The I-HUB is home to the Imperial White City Incubator, which offers flexible workspace and support for young businesses.  It’s also the location of Central Working White City – a shared workspace collaboration between Central Working and Imperial College London ThinkSpace.

Businesses based at the I-HUB include Polymateria, a pioneering materials company that has developed a fully biodegradable plastic, and OGCI Climate Investments, a one billion dollar start-up business that is developing low-emission technologies.
