Collaboration in Research
Alliances for Research Challenges
Alliances for Research Challenges (ARCs) connect Scotland’s research excellence to Scotland’s national challenges. They build on our distinctive collaborative ethos and our world-class universities – building connections across universities, industry partners, research institutes, third-sector collaborators, Research Pools, Innovation Centres, policymakers, and the people of Scotland – to create interdisciplinary, multi-institutional, cross-sectoral networks, tackling key societal challenges aligned to Scottish Government priorities.
Innovation Centres enhance innovation and entrepreneurship across Scotland’s key economic sectors, create jobs and grow the economy.
