Academic and Industry Links
It pays to be connected

Developing links between academia and industry can help businesses grow and expand by stimulating Research and Development (R&D) and helping businesses reach new markets. The combination of our innovative Chemical Sciences sector coupled with a world-leading academic research base makes Scotland a great place to do this.

There are a number of organisations capable of facilitating these joint ventures. They understand the sensitivities that exist, have existing relationships with all of Scotland’s universities and research institutions, and they work with business to build constructive and collaborative partnerships. Links to some of those who can assist are detailed below, or more information about Interface can be found on this site.

There are also some great case studies on the positive impact that this has had. Please visit our Case Studies page to read some of these.
