Back in 2003 CENTRIM and Science and Technology Policy Research moved to the purpose-built Freeman Centre on the University of Sussex campus. CENTRIM was then joined at Freeman Centre by members of the Economic and Social Engagement department at University of Brighton.
In August 2010, as part of University-wide improvements to organisation of faculties, CENTRIM joined forces with Brighton Business School. In early 2013 CENTRIM moved to 154 Edward Street, Brighton. In 2013 CENTRIM drafted a five year plan that will run from 2014 through to 2019. This plan will be both bold and conservative in its nature, by devoting its time to both Academic disciplines and tasks as well as looking to further strengthen it links to the community and local and international businesses / organizations.
The core of CENTRIM's being is the acquisition of knowledge and it distribution to all.
