Funded by the Scottish Funding Council with support from Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, the Innovation Centre programme was first launched back in 2012. Since then, £120m (2013-18) has been invested in eight Innovation Centres across a range of key sectors. Everything from sensing to stratified medicine, digital health and care to data, aquaculture to oil and gas, and biotechnology to construction.
The common aim of each and every one of Scotland’s Innovation Centres: to help businesses large and small increase the pace of innovation – and, in turn, help both our economy and our people to flourish and prosper.
And because we’ll be on hand throughout, you’ll also have an expert and informed delivery partner to help and advise at each and every stage of your Innovation Centre-supported solution.
Scotland’s Innovation Centre programme operates under General Block Exemption Scheme 2015-16 regulations, helping simplify the process by which businesses can receive public funding. See the Scottish Funding Council’s State Aid Registration page for further details.
