We can help your business to unleash the potential within your workforce.
Located in the heart of Carlisle city centre, our Carlisle Business Interaction Centre (CBIC) is an entry point for businesses, employees and students seeking to access university expertise and support.
CBIC is the base for the university's Business School in Carlisle which was recently awarded the Small Business Charter Bronze Award in recognition of its active participation in supporting start-ups and small businesses in Cumbria and North Lancashire. It's also home to the Centre for Regional Economic Development.
Our development managers are on hand to discuss your needs, or to visit your business to discuss how we can work together.
