Scotland’s most innovative, inspirational and impactful collaborations between business and academics are being invited to enter the fourth Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards.

Interface, which matches businesses to world leading Scottish universities, research institutes and colleges for research and development, is looking for entries in seven categories – the largest number to date.

To encourage more businesses to consider partnering with Scotland’s world-leading academics, Interface is taking the Awards on the road, visiting different regions around Scotland in the coming months. Roadshow events will take place in Dundee, Glasgow, Inverness and Stirling and will feature companies which have benefitted from tapping into academic expertise and academics who support industry in meeting their goals through research and development.

John Kemp, Interim Chief Executive of the Scottish Funding Council, said:

 “This event plays a huge part in celebrating Scottish innovation and bringing people together to share ideas. It’s always fresh and always relevant, as this year’s changes to the format show. I’m very much looking forward to the Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards 2019.”

More information on the Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards 2019 is available on the Interface website.

The closing date for applications is Friday 30 November.
