Started: February 1 2015

The science base in Scotland has traditionally been strong with world leading universities. But the innovation system is less robust. This research analyses the weak relationship between science and innovation in Scotland, discovering the reasons behind this disconnect, particularly human capital, funding for innovation and academic-industrial collaboration.
The research is funded by the ESRC Future of Scotland and the UK programme and is conducted with Omid Omidvar and Joyce Tait of the University of Edinburgh.
