Stirling University Innovation Park is where a dynamic enterprise environment merges with an inspirational campus setting to create a premier business location.
High quality accommodation offers the ideal solution for innovative research and development companies and organisations or new start-ups while excellent conference and administrative facilities add a bespoke support service.
An enterprising client care ethos opens the door for tenants to a dynamic, collaborative community that extends beyond the campus and Stirling University to other universities and external companies. A framework for sharing ideas, knowledge and encouraging innovative connections is a defining feature of the park’s operation.
Situated on one of Europe’s most picturesque campuses, with a backdrop of heather-clad hills and over-looked by the towering Wallace Monument, Stirling University Innovation Park is also strategically located to take advantage of Scotland’s excellent air, road and rail transport network.
Since 1993, Stirling University Innovation Park Ltd has been providing support services to organisations involved in new product development, process improvement and technology transfer. The Innovation Park works closely with the Enterprise Network to help companies identify the barriers to product development and overcome them.
The Innovation Park aims to stimulate innovation, product and process development and technology transfer within firms in Scotland. Through assisting companies to establish a continuous improvement culture, the Innovation Park aims to promote enhanced growth, competitiveness, creativity, customer satisfaction and market share, both nationally and internationally.
The Innovation Park tries to achieve this by adopting an open and ‘can-do’ approach. Its staff has direct experience of the product development process and can help in identifying a company’s potential and developing a market-led, pragmatic solution leading to faster growth.
In July 2004, the Innovation Park embarked on an ambitious programme that runs in concert with its other innovation support activities. The Scottish Collaboration & Innovation Programme (SCIP) aims to promote co-operation in research and development and knowledge transfer between SMEs, larger companies and the Scottish public sector science base.
