Hot desking hub for agri-businesses opens

Rothamsted Enterprises has opened a new Collaborative Hub with hotdesking space for businesses across the agriculture, farming, food, science, climate change, innovation, and technology sectors.

The new co-working space in the historic Russell Building is ready to welcome hot-deskers from 17 May, to join a thriving agri-business community. The Russell Building is part of Herts IQ, an enterprise zone supporting the growth of agri-tech businesses in Hertfordshire.

Based on campus with Rothamsted Research in Harpenden, the hub has been created with the help of a £1.7m Local Growth Fund investment from Herts IQ and Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

Nicole Sadd, Rothamsted Enterprises CEO, said: “Our stunning new collaborative hub really is the ideal place for agri-businesses to come and hot desk.

“Meet with other like-minded businesses and who knows what collaboration and innovation opportunities are around the corner.”

The campus also offers meetings and event space at Rothamsted Conference Centre, with full social distancing measures in place.

Hotdesking will be available from Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm with facilities including free lockers, free carparking, free tea and coffee and free Wi-Fi, as well as printing facilities and a fully staffed reception.

Set up in 2015 as the commercial arm of Rothamsted Research, Rothamsted Enterprises is a collaboration between Rothamsted Research, the Lawes Agricultural Trust and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). Rothamsted Research is an innovation partner and founding member of Herts IQ.
