The SETsquared Partnership is the enterprise collaboration between the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey.


SETsquared now operates programmes at two prime locations on either side of Exeter: the University of Exeter Innovation Centre on the Streatham campus and the Exeter Science Park Centre at Exeter Science Park, providing 3,440m2 and 1,750m2 respectively of office and laboratory space.

These Centres provide an outstanding environment and a wealth of facilities and services, including a conference centre and café, and access to leading edge knowledge and expertise. There is a diverse group of clients – from the public and private sectors, from start-up to mature companies – benefiting from flexible packages across offices and laboratories, hotdesks and virtual services.

The Centres are part of the SETsquared Partnership – the global no.1 university business incubator – supporting high-tech start-up companies, providing student enterprise and enabling academics to maximise the impact of their research.

In all the facilities, dedicated business and technology support staff are available, providing business acceleration services to clients at all stages of development. Clients have access to experts in residence, business mentors, networks and a range of events, workshops and seminars.

The Innovation and Science Park Centres are the gateway to the University’s services and facilities for business. Last year more than 500 projects were undertaken with business and £5.6m was generated by the University through its work with industry. More than 100 members of academic and technical staff have worked with a commercial partner during the past three years.
