Staffordshire University announces launch of Digital Institute London
Staffordshire University’s new digital innovation centre will be opening in Here East at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park campus.
Situated next to companies like Sports Interactive, BT Sports and Bid Stack, Digital Institute London will be the latest to join Here East as a dedicated esports hub, providing training for broadcasters, shoutcasters and managers.
The tech gaming theme of the new centre comes after Staffordshire University became the first UK university to offer a esports-focused degree course.
Professor Liz Barnes, Staffordshire University vice chancellor and chief executive, explained: “We’ve been impressed with the rapid transformation of the Here East super-campus environment which will position us alongside a diverse community of exciting business start-ups and creative industries.
“We believe this is the right fit for the Digital Institute London and we look forward to playing a key part in Here East’s success as a location for growth and innovation.”
