The REACTOR project, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Anglia Ruskin University, is excited to announce the official launch of our Incubation Space, which is now open to enterprises to use.

The Space will provide small- and medium-sized enterprises and start-up companies access to top-of-the-range software on hi-spec machines, alongside academic and technological expertise to help refine your product and ensure successful move from concept to reality.

Please join the REACTOR team for drinks and nibbles to celebrate at the Incubation Space in Compass House, East Road, Cambridge. The REACTOR team will show you around the space and facilities, there will be games to play and worlds to immerse yourself in – all created by our Computer Games Art students. 

Our Incubation Space supporting academics and technical support staff, as well as visiting speakers, will be available all evening to discuss your ideas and concepts.
