Innovation centres family
The Scottish Funding Council launched the Innovation Centre programme in 2012 to support transformational collaboration between universities and businesses and working in partnership with Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. The Centres aim to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship across Scotland’s key economic sectors, create jobs and grow the economy.
Innovation Centres have backing from industry and will draw on all of Scotland’s research expertise in the relevant sector to work on problems and opportunities identified by industry. They will add value through secondments, industrial studentships, spaces for collaborative work and shared access to equipment.
Innovation Centres also support skills and training to develop the next generation of researchers and knowledge exchange practitioners through masters and post-doctoral level provision.
