Supporting the growth of the life sciences sector in the Highlands and Islands
The life sciences growth sector covers health tech for human and animals and biotechnology.
Technology companies also pursue opportunities in the health and wellbeing markets and develop innovative technology solutions.
Companies in this highly innovative sector often generate above average salaries and have an international outlook. Regulatory requirements for commercialisation of life sciences products often results in longer periods of research and development which demand specialist financial investment and extended timescales for return on investment. We can support your business through all stages of your growth.
There are a number of growth areas in life sciences across the Highlands and Islands. Discover more about what they are and how they're contributing to our regional economy.
