Environmental Futures and Big Data Impact Lab – Our Projects

The Impact Lab provides a wide range of valuable support for businesses in Devon

Each company we work with receives a bespoke package to suit their needs. Our services are free of charge, although our grants require a match funding contribution from the business.

The heart of what the Impact Lab offers is resource for collaborative projects to help businesses solve a key technical challenge in the development of a new product, service or process.

To deliver a project, we also call on the support of a wide range of academic specialists from within any of the seven Impact Lab partners. These academics can provide specific skills and subject-matter expertise where needed.
