Heriot-Watt has secured a ‘virtual tenancy’ at BioCity, Scotland’s largest business park and incubator space for life sciences companies. The centre aims to grow the sector by teaming together with bio-pharmaceutical and big data companies, Scotland's 16 universities, NHS Scotland and Scotland's eight innovation centres.
The ‘virtual tenancy’ will provide a range of benefits, including access to meeting spaces and opportunities for increased interaction with other tenants and Innovation Hub partners. The tenancy is seen as a way in which the University can broaden its partnerships.
Dr Grant Sellar, Business Development Executive (IB3/SLS/MACS) in Research and Enterprise Services, said, “Our tenancy at BioCity Scotland represents a fantastic opportunity for the University to build even stronger collaborative links to industry and other universities in the life and medical sciences.”
Heriot-Watt’s Virtual Tenancy will be co-ordinated through RES. If you would like to know more, or wish to explore opportunities to meet with industry partners through the Innovation Hub, contact Grant Sellar, email: email@example.com Ext: 4469.
