Waterfront Innovation Quarter
Plans to create a vibrant Waterfront Innovation Quarter situated in a modern waterfront location with easy access to the city centre are underway. The Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter will be made up of purpose-build facilities for learning, teaching and applied research as well as social, leisure and recreation spaces.
The concept of a city university Waterfront Innovation Quarter will set Swansea apart from any other city in Wales.
Swansea will lead the way in establishing an economic and cultural model which facilitates integration and drives enterprise growth. As well as being an economic hub, the Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter will also be a catalyst for further external investment into the region. It will deliver clear economic and commercial benefits to attract companies, partnerships and investment, and therefore create a critical mass of expertise.
In addition, close business and industry relationships will allow us to continue producing employable graduates and create skills development opportunities relevant to employers.
