The government is to give Birmingham City University £14m to transform the former Typhoo tea factory in the city into a collaborative innovation centre to support arts-focused SMEs.

The scheme, called the STEAMhouse project, is intended to support the development of the Midlands Engine by helping small businesses grow. It has been estimated the scheme could create 10,000 new jobs and stimulate the regeneration of Digbeth. STEAMhouse will be a collaborative project between the city's universities, the creative industries, and the SMEs themselves.
