Life Sciences Scotland 2018

9th November, 2018

THE SCOTSMAN’s Life Sciences supplement, 2nd November 2018, posed the question ‘What is the biggest challenge to growing Scotland’s life sciences sector and how can it be overcome?’  Click here to see some of Scotland’s leading experts, including Professor Sir Pete Downes, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Dundee, provide their responses.

 

The supplement included a progress report on how the Life Sciences Scotland strategy has moved on since 2017 in the four key areas:  Business Environment, Innovation and Commercialisation, Internationalisation and Sustainable Production.  Under Innovation and Commercialisation it was noted that Academic Health Science Partnerships are being reviewed with the aim of creating a uniform model for Scotland and the Academic Health Sciences Partnership in Tayside model, led by Professor Dilip Nathwani, was cited as being ‘seen as a success in attracting and engaging relevant partners, including creating a path for firms who want to come to Scotland to work with academic and clinical networks’.
