Industrial Biotechnology (IBioIC)
IBioIC will accelerate and de-risk the development of commercially viable, sustainable solutions for high value (speciality & commodity) manufacturing in chemistry-using and life science sectors. Its vision is to establish an innovation and growth engine yielding substantial economic impact and delivering increasing and sustainable wealth creation, prosperity and employment in Scotland.
Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC)
The core function of the SAIC is to release the potential for growth through effective collaboration between the industry and the Scottish research community. This will include, coordinated problem solving via Priority Innovation Actions to address the major constraints to growth and development, support for new businesses and ensuring effective knowledge exchange. The resulting growth in production will bring with it investment in Scottish jobs, infrastructure and research, while underpinning food safety and security and an improved diet for the Scottish population.
