What is STEAM?

STEAM is at the heart of everything we do. Our activities bring together the five STEAM disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics to create new ways of thinking, design innovative solutions, and support the development of unique products, services, and strategies for our STEAMhouse community.

STEAMhouse: the beginning

STEAMhouse is powered by Birmingham City University in partnership with Eastside Projects, funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Arts Council England.

STEAMhouse was launched in 2018 and its original home was a converted warehouse in Digbeth, Birmingham. It enjoyed huge success in supporting the development and growth of regional businesses by sharing knowledge and skills through collaborative activities.

We have since expanded our offering and environment for the next stage of our journey with the brand new STEAMhouse, a fantastic redevelopment of the Belmont Works Building in the centre of Birmingham, just a few minutes walk from the planned HS2 rail station.

STEAMhouse: the future

The new STEAMhouse delivers an unrivalled range of unique business support services, brand new and improved business development facilities, with bigger and better opportunities for our customers to experiment, test, and develop new offerings with like-minded businesses, organisations, and innovators.

STEAMhouse facilities and business support

The STEAMhouse community has access to a wide range of business support services including coworking and meeting spaces, state-of-the-art production space and prototyping facilities, a digital hub connecting users with future technologies such as AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality), and 5G testbeds and trials.

The STEAMhouse community can also participate in a range of collaborative, cross-disciplinary business support activities including workshops, courses, events, and networking.
