Innovation Centres

Scotland's Innovation Centre programme was launched in 2012 by the Scottish Government to support transformational collaboration between universities and businesses. The programme is funded by the Scottish Funding Council with support from Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

Innovation Centres are designed to develop new and existing partnerships between academics in Scottish HEIs and businesses and new entrepreneurs. Each of the Centres has an independent structure for funding and innovation support.

The eight Innovation Centres are listed below together with links to their respective websites. For general enquiries please contact us to discuss by emailing our Research & Innovation Team or by calling them on +44 (0)1224 274236.
