Digital Innovation Facility

As part of Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, the Digital Innovation Facility (DIF) is set to open in the winter of 2020.

The DIF is a £12.7million investment co-funded by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, which will concentrate on areas of research in computer science, robotics, and engineering, distributed simulation and immersive visualisation to enable collaborative R&D and support businesses linked to the exploitation of digital technologies.

The DIF will be home to an immersive reality lab and four allocated labs for robotics, with a specific interest in robots for social domestic care, robots for the lab of the future, robots for manufacturing and robots for extreme environments.
