    The Edinburgh Science Triangle is a pioneering collaboration of universities, research institutes, National Health Service, science parks and government across Scotland’s historic capital and surrounding area.

    The key to the region’s success is a critical mass of world-leading scientists, the research power of its academic institutions, a positive culture of multi-disciplinary working, embedded commercialisation and enabling technology.

    Edinburgh Science Triangle promotes ‘place’, raising the profile of the area as a top location in Europe which encourages interaction with the academic community, facilitating knowledge transfer opportunities and attracting inward investment into the region.

    By delivering networking and other community building activities for companies across the technology spectrum, the Edinburgh Science Triangle encourages a lively and supportive community.

    The region’s Science Parks are hubs of knowledge exchange activity and compelling locations in which to be based, encouraging companies to integrate with a vibrant scientific community.

    “The Edinburgh city region is a leading international destination for scientific research and innovation. The area accounts for roughly two-thirds of Scotland’s spend on R & D and we have our fair share of success stories.”
