International Institute forProduct & Service Innovation
The building, jointly funded by the ERDF and the University, provides flexible, high quality workspaces that showcase the innovative technologies and processes taking place within the building. IIPSI is the third building we have designed for Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and the University.
IIPSI provides a dedicated facility and support to regional small and medium enterprises (SMEs) based on the demonstration of new technology, new processes and new applications to enable the creation and testing of market leading products and services. SMEs are able to see and touch technology throughout the open-plan facility, co-located with the experts that are working to develop it. The building provides both interactive openness and calm working areas.
The philosophy of IIPSI is for the knowledge transfer and the demonstrations to take place in the whole building; next to the desk spaces are attractive break-out areas for brainstorming ideas, helping people think in a less formal environment about how they can actually take these product innovations forward.
