At CSIC we define innovation as “change that unlocks new value”

By linking together businesses, university experts, the public sector and the economic development networks, our industry-led team supports a culture of innovation that drives transformational change across the construction industry. 

Our team assists industry and key procurement players to build strong collaborative projects that tackle construction industry challenges, create jobs and stimulate economic growth.

How do we do that? 

We are hosted by Edinburgh Napier University and based at our unique Innovation Factory at Hamilton International Technology Park in Lanarkshire, central Scotland.
