Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Meet The Ingenuity Lab team

The Ingenuity Lab is run by the Haydn Green Institute, which is part of Nottingham University Business School. We are based at the Ingenuity Centre on the University of Nottingham Innovation Park (UNIP), Jubilee Campus, Nottingham.

I’ve never worked somewhere with such talent and energy for exploration. The HGI is truly about innovation – not only what we preach but also what we practise.
