European Marine Science Park

The natural home for marine science

Visit the EMSP website

Situated on Scotland’s stunning West Coast, the European Marine Science Park (EMSP) provides quality office and laboratory accommodation in an established location for marine science. This is a world-leading cluster of marine research and business expertise.

It shares its location with the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). For businesses, this means easy access to research expertise, knowledge and facilities; to a talented skills pool of marine science graduates; and directly to the marine environment, with deep inshore waters nearby.

‘It’s a fantastic working environment. We knew that there were already lots of organisations based at the EMSP that it would be good to be close to. The cross-working is very important for us. It’s a thriving and exciting place to be!
