Highlights from the heart of an expanding Campus
Roslin Innovation Centre opened for business in August 2017 and three years on, our unique business gateway continues to be a hotbed of growth, entrepreneurship and collaboration within the innovation environment of the University of Edinburgh’s Easter Bush Campus.
As at August 2020, our occupancy was over 75% and we have accommodated 31 tenant companies ranging from established local and multinational organisations, start-ups and spin-outs, to charities and University business units.
We are pleased to say that our tenants have all risen to the challenges of 2020 with their innovative energy and entrepreneurial spirit, with several companies working collaboratively on COVID-19 related projects, gaining recognition for individual and company achievements and success in funding and investment taking them to the next levels of business growth and a brighter future in 2021 and beyond.
"There is no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic certainly made 2020/21 a challenging year for all of us and required Roslin Innovation Centre to implement new ways of working and operating within our public areas, lab and office space for the safety of our staff, tenants and visitors.
"We would like to thank everyone for your positivity and collegiality as we continue to work together to address the challenges posed by COVID-19 during these uncertain times."John Mackenzie, CEO, Roslin Innovation Centre
