A visit from HRH The Prince of Wales

Our most distinguished visitor yet (and there is tough competition). Last Thursday, His Royal Highness took a tour of the Barclays’ Eagle Lab (incubator and makerspace powered by Fab Lab London). The Prince of Wales was joined by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), of which he has been a patron for over 40 years. At the lab, they met entrepreneurs running businesses promoting sustainability in particular. Desolenator, one of our resident businesses, presented their clean technology venture of making the most environmentally friendly water purification system with the potential to change the lives of millions.

Here’s a picture with our newest eco-friendly addition to the lab kitchen in the background: a window farm using recycled bottles to contain herbsĀ and automatic irrigation.
