Welcome to the Edinburgh Science Triangle, one of the top ten research and development locations in Europe.
A truly diverse and dynamic scientific community across multiple disciplines, including informatics, stem cell research, biotechnology and microelectronics.
Eight science and research locations within 30 minutes of each other, located close to Edinburgh city centre, academic hubs and research institutes - building a strong science and technology community.
This dynamic community houses more than 3,000 world-class researchers, over 100 market-leading companies, across more than 370,000 sq m of flexible accommodation.
Research and development at the various institutes and research centres in and around Edinburgh continue to expand - this includes the new Roslin Institute, a £60million state-of-the-art building at the Easter Bush Campus.
The universities promote multi-disciplinary working along with embedded commercialisation in the research process.
Edinburgh Science Triangle is a world-influencing location in the Life Sciences, Informatics, Micro- and Opto-electronics and Energy sectors.
Industry clusters have developed around these research strengths achieving critical mass in terms of skilled workforce, networks, infrastructure, supply chain and specialist professions.
There is a culture of collaboration in Scotland which is central to our future. Although each centre of research and development may be working alone or in collaboration, they all confirm Edinburgh’s place at the forefront of scientific discovery.
Encouraging existing collaborative groups to share best practice and learning experiences is essential and there exists a strong knowledge exchange community and networks.
Edinburgh City Region is one of Scotland's best-connected areas, with a sophisticated transport and communications network linking it with the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond.
At the heart of Edinburgh is a vibrant city centre which provides easy access to strategic science and technology locations throughout Edinburgh city region.
