Highlands and Islands Enterprise invest millions of pounds of grant-in-aid funding each year to deliver the objectives of the Scottish Government's Economic Strategy.
HIE is a public agency and must ensure public money is used in a manner that is effective, efficient and achieves value for money. Services in excess of £50,000 are subject to a process of open competitive tendering.
We post information about our events, as well as those run by our partner organisations.
