  • Industry Engagement
  • Innovation

Funder - Part funded by European Development Fund

The Aura Innovation Centre helps businesses to innovate by shaping promising ideas into practical solutions – improving efficiency and generating clean business growth.

Project Partners

Opening in Q4 2019, the centre will encourage innovative and creative thinking, connecting businesses with the brightest minds and talent from the University of Hull. Our Innovation Managers are ready to talk to businesses about their ambitions today.


It’s not just about bright business ideas, it’s also about turning that idea into a solution that adds real value. That value can come from creating new revenue opportunities or driving more revenue through existing channels; through new or improved products or services; from creating efficiencies that save time, money or both; or from improvements to productivity or performance.


We can work with businesses at any stage of the innovation process;
• Ideas generation and shaping
• Accessing funding and other support
• Implementation and making it happen

Is your business eligible for funded support?
If you’re a small or medium sized business based in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, North or North East Lincolnshire region, you could be closer than you think. 

The best way to find out if your project could be eligible for funding is to speak with our Innovation Managers.

It’s about fostering a place where collaboration can happen easily to kick-start the low-carbon energy supply chain here in the Energy Estuary. By bringing together all the different players to develop a robust and sustainable network, we will ensure that the UK continues to lead the way in offshore wind, regionally, nationally and globally.
