The UniServices Evolve magazine featured the IIB on the front cover of its July issue. A full page article highlighted the IIB’s contributions in support of the growth of New Zealand’s life sciences industry. A second article featured the IIB’s co-location model using Comvita Innovation Ltd as a case study. The company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Comvita Ltd, is co-located in the IIB thereby gaining full access to the hi-tech research infrastructure of the School of Biological Sciences. Comvita Innovation also supervises a large number of postgraduate students and engages in collaborations with several academic groups university-wide. The IIB currently has 8 co-located companies. A steady-state of 12 co-located companies is envisaged at full capacity – laboratory and office space is currently available for start-ups as well as R&D teams of mature companies. Please contact us for an individual briefing and tour to learn more about the benefits of co-location.
