Commercialising collaborative innovation
The north east of Scotland is home to leading life sciences research in biologics and a distinct cluster of clinical-stage biotech companies.
The region's goal is to harness these strengths and related asset base to develop one of the most exciting commercial life sciences clusters in the world. And create an international centre for excellence in biologics to build a healthier nation and address modern health epidemics.
The target is to double the number of companies in the region's life sciences cluster by 2027.
We work with industry, academia and the NHS to create an environment and support programmes that help life sciences businesses, researchers and academics, and health practitioners to commercialise research and ideas, grow the sector and increase its economic impact. Achieving this will anchor established and growing life sciences businesses in the region and catalyse new spinouts and start-ups, doubling the size of the company base in the area, attracting new partners and securing investment.
