How CityLABS Works

CityLabs is a collaborative project that is grant funded by ERDF. The Open University, ZTE and Fronesys have pooled their skills to create an environment that engages SMEs in research and business development. To get involved simply SIGN UP and you will have access to the full range of services that CityLabs offers. All you have to do is tell us who you are and a bit about your concept for product development or the challenges you are currently facing. We will get in touch and work with you to develop a personalised programme of CityLabs support.
