Created in partnership with Eastside Projects and funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Arts Council England, we’re driving innovation and research for major long-term growth across the region.
Bringing inventors, entrepreneurs, businesses and craftspeople together to develop exciting new ideas and products.
Led by industry talent, our experimental STEAMlabs (innovation workshops) help you develop new thinking, partnerships and products.
Open since early 2018, the first phase of STEAMhouse invites original business thinkers to collaborate and innovate. Engaging with hundreds of SMEs in the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership area.
There are specially designed spaces to prototype new products and develop new ideas. Plus a fabrication facility where members can experiment with digital, wood, metal and print production.

Work has started on the £60 million project to transform the historic Belmont Works into our new home, a large-scale incubation, collaboration and maker space right in the heart of Birmingham, due to open in 2021.
We’ll also be driving new talent with the STEAMacademy, an education centre offering interdisciplinary courses.
The project, partly funded by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP), will, as well as being STEAMhouse’s new home, provide Birmingham City University with new teaching and learning space alongside facilities and space for businesses and organisations wanting to base themselves in the city centre campus and form collaborative partnerships with the University.
