Opportunity North East is the private sector catalyst driving transformational change to diversify north east Scotland's economy. Our leadership, resources and delivery at pace drive business growth and increase productivity, create jobs for the future and accelerate the just transition to net-zero.
We work with regional and national partners to co-create, develop and deliver transformational projects and enhance the entrepreneurial environment in the region’s key sectors of digital tech; food, drink, and agriculture; life sciences and tourism.
Through ONE, the private sector shapes the region’s future low-carbon economy and creates high-skill, high-value jobs.
More than 80 members drawn from the region's business community, its two universities and colleges, and regional and national partners sit on ONE’s main and sector boards. Their collective experience, insights and connections shape action and delivery with targets set for each of the industry sectors to build on regional opportunities and contribute to national economic goals:
We focus our activity on six themes across the sectors:
ONE has a 10-year £64 million funding commitment from The Wood Foundation and uses its resources to secure match funding to deliver new projects – turning opportunity and ambition into action and investment. Over £30 million of committed ONE investment has secured partnership funding of £85 million into the region over the past six years.
