The key handover ceremony officially launched the Canterbury Innovation Centre opened for business status. The ceremony was attended by representatives from all Partners involved in the development, funding and management of the centre including Cllr John Gilbey, Chair of East Kent Spatial Development Company and Leader of Canterbury City Council, Pam Alexander, Chief Executive of SEEDA, Professor Julia Goodfellow and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Kent.

Jo Clark, Basepoint’s Centre Manager, said: “Although in its infancy, the Centre is already attracting a variety of businesses that fit the criteria of innovation and technology. Within the first month of opening, 35 out of the 85 units available have already been occupied, a huge achievement considering the current economic climate. We look forward to developing the Centre and creating an exciting new business community here.
