Our sites

At Pontio Innovation, in the centre of Bangor, innovators and entrepreneurs are able to explore, create and develop new products and services.

The Pontio Innovation centre enables our entrepreneurs and designers to evaluate their ideas using simple craft tools and materials. They can also test the viability of prototypes using digital rapid prototyping technologies.

At the Innovation Quarter in Dean St, adjacent to the schools of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, there is an emphasis on producing fully functional ‘engineered’ prototypes.

There is a constant two-way flow of innovation between our sites: end-user inspired innovations generally start life at Pontio Innovation and progress to the Innovation Quarter for implementation; technology inspired innovations generally start life at the Innovation Quarter and progress to Pontio Innovation for end-user validation.
