What is the Flood Innovation Centre?

The Flood Innovation Centre supports small and medium-sized businesses to develop new products and services to help with flood resilience.

The Flood Innovation Centre brings the University of Hull’s world-class research in climate change, flood, engineering, logistics, materials and computer science to Humber based SMEs.

The Centre is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
