Our UK Innovation Hubs are open, interactive and stimulating virtual and physical environments in which we engage collaboratively with our clients and ecosystem partners.

They are designed to discover and investigate new and emerging technologies and create, assess and test new innovation ideas. The hubs are a dynamic virtual environment or physical spaces to run interactive meetings and co-innovation workshops.


To support these aims, our physical Innovation Hubs include:

  • Immersive technologies in the form of Augmented and Virtual Reality headsets – come in and view our CGI story on the headsets as an immersive experience
  • Mobile display pods to support solution demos and collaboration
  • Extra-large display screen to share content with impact
  • An expansive Imagine scribble wall to support exchange of ideas


We invite our clients to join us and explore the topics, our vision, experience and critically how we can enhance knowledge, unlock potential and support ambitions in this area. To get in touch about how to join an innovation workshop or register your interest, please
