Over 150 people gathered in Edinburgh yesterday evening to celebrate the impact of knowledge sharing between businesses, colleges, universities and research institutes.

Now in their fifth year, the Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards showcase the achievements of colleges and universities working together with industry to create jobs and economic growth.

The awards were presented by Ivan McKee MSP, Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation. Speaking after the ceremony, he said:

“I’d like to congratulate all the nominees and winners who have been recognised for their outstanding work at the Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards.”

“Not only do these awards celebrate activities and projects happening all over Scotland, they bring people together and create new collaborations and partnerships. Their innovation plays a crucial role in boosting productivity and creating sustainable economic growth for the country.”

The winners were chosen by a panel of expert judges who were looking for projects that demonstrated innovation and transformation, as well as individuals who go above and beyond in their contribution to knowledge exchange.
