The Vision

The Inverness Campus development is a once in a lifetime opportunity - a landmark project for Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) it will have far reaching benefits across the region.

Building on the success of  the adjacent  Centre for Health Science, Lifescan Scotland and Raigmore Hospital, the vision is to develop a Campus that will allow a number of key research and education organisations to work together to form a uniquely innovative environment.

The objective is to create world-class, pioneering facilities, which will be an exemplar for rural communities and the first of its kind in Scotland.

HIE believes Inverness Campus will attract businesses and high earning professionals to the region to help drive economic growth in addition to helping retain a population of young people within the Highlands.

It will be an outstanding example of shared resource, fostering a spirit of collaboration, which will be the key to its success.

Inverness Campus will offer a true Highland welcome to all new businesses, visitors and students.  It will be a vibrant place - inspiring and stimulating.  Open spaces will be designed to reflect the breathtaking landscape of the Moray Firth and beyond.

Speaking in 2012, Inverness Campus Project Director, Ruaraidh MacNeil, explains the Campus vision and the progress made so far.
