WE HAVE SPACE FOR THE FOLLOWING TYPE OF ORGANISATIONS:

We have space available for the following types of organisations:

  • Technology and life sciences businesses delivering innovation and research;
  • Knowledge industries – organisations with a focus on information and technology;
  • Organisations with high growth potential;
  • Organisations that would particularly benefit from increased engagement with the NHS and university sector for mutual benefit;
  • Organisations that align with and add value to our Campus Development Strategy;
  • Inward investments, where locating on the Campus will support innovation and/or secure new economic activity for our region;
  • Organisations operating in a national or international market. For those operating in a local market, the product or service must be unique.

 

Our Ethos

Inverness Campus aims to encourage and support research, development and innovation in technology and life sciences. We’re a specialist park, and business space on the Campus is prioritised for those enterprises progressing life sciences and technology. Our key location criteria is that your business would benefit from and bring benefit to the ‘co-innovation’ activity here. 

Examples of organisations unlikely to fit the criteria include those delivering local business services -  provision of professional services e.g. solicitors, accountants, etc; retail; and large scale industrial.

Our Plan

The Inverness Campus Development Strategy sets out how we propose to realise the significant benefits that the Campus project offers, both at a local and international level. 

The Campus is already flourishing and continues to grow apace, fulfilling the original vision of a place where businesses, academia, the public sector and community all thrive and grow in one location. Our vision includes the delivery of a high quality, accessible location that maintains its clear Highland identity and continues to have a positive environmental impact.

We've created a collaborative and innovative community where intellectual and commercial interests intertwine. And the Campus provides an attractive and creative environment for investors worldwide. 

The main industry focus of existing businesses at the Campus is life sciences and technology. We're keen to expand this focus and strengthen collaboration opportunities amidst similar, like minded businesses.

Development strategy

Inverness Campus is taking shape – growing out of the ground in numerous exciting and forward-looking ways. Over the past five years, under the strategic guidance of Inverness Campus Partnership Forum, excellent progress has been made by HIE and its partners towards delivering the collective vision of the Campus as an innovative, collaborative space that provides a stimulating educational environment, attracts knowledge-based businesses and is enjoyed by the local community.

This short strategy document summarises the journey so far and our future plans up to 2023.

Design guidelines

Our guidelines provide a design framework to deliver coherence and quality in the overall masterplan of Inverness Campus. The guidelines define the design principles and parameters that are requirements for the development of plots within phase 1 and outline the quality and nature of the estate landscape and infrastructure being developed by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).

Ambassadors newsletters

The Campus Ambassadors programme brings together a wide variety of individuals who work at, or have a connection to Inverness Campus. Key to the programme is sharing updates about Campus developments and opportunities for the benefit of those already here and to share with wider networks.
