MIAH is the UK’s first net zero industrialisation and electrification skills training centre dedicated to supporting a broader range of entrepreneurs and innovators to develop, prove, prototype and commercialise next generation products and processes to tackle climate change.
The £4m Manchester Innovation Activities Hub (MIAH) is a pioneering, state-of-the-art innovation and skills training facility for the low carbon economy. We enable innovative businesses to scale, pivot and future proof their organisation through access to the latest industrial grade fabrication equipment, electrification and industrial digitisation skills training, collaborative R&D projects and access funding under one roof.
MIAH exists to strengthen links between Greater Manchester’s centres of research excellence, innovation assets, and investment funding mechanisms to open up new opportunities for under-represented groups and left behind communities.
We are passionate about levelling up through innovation, driving economic recovery that puts local people and communities first, embraces the benefits of diversity, rebalances inequalities, creates lasting resilience, supports the move to net zero carbon and rethinks productivity.
At MIAH, we’ll turn your ideas into reality. We connect the dots between academia and industry to translate research into market innovation. And we work closely with local stakeholders to drive inclusive growth and truly ‘level up’ the economy.
