Digitallabs@MMU is here to help bridge the gap between the university and business. We combine the traditional university aims of experimentation, knowledge sharing and discovery with the delivery of practical working business solutions.

Based in the School of Computing, Mathematics, and Digital Technology at Manchester Metropolitan University we are in the fortunate position of having access to the expertise and services of one of the largest Universities in the UK.
