Name announced for the NAIC
In recognition of the enormous contribution of Professor Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya to the University, the city, the region, and to Jaguar Land Rover, our newest building has been named the Lord Bhattacharyya Building. This will be the home of the National Automotive Innovation Centre - our £150m partnership between WMG, Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors European Technical Centre and Government which will be a beacon for automotive research - bringing together the brightest minds from industry and academia to develop future automotive technology.
Coventry City Council has also asked that University Road, from the Scarman roundabout to the Lord Bhattacharyya Building is renamed Lord Bhattacharyya Way.
There will be a formal opening of the new building in the New Year.
