Our new £10 million Industry Engagement Building, based in Glasgow, is to become the headquarters for the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.
This news comes during a visit to the site by Scottish Enterprise senior director of technology and sector delivery, Neil Francis, to officially mark the start of construction and reveal artist impressions of the new five-storey building which received full planning permission in February this year.
The Industry Engagement Building, alongside the Technology and Innovation Centre, sets the foundation for ITREZ, offering companies a breeding ground to harness cutting edge research, access the best people and develop new products.
The UK Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult will be at the heart of ITREZ, alongside the UK’s world-class research and innovation community for offshore wind, tidal and wave, as it aims to facilitate the commercialisation of innovative technologies that give maximum impact in the field of offshore renewable energy.
