Working in Collaboration

The Campus is the ideal location for your business to benefit from shared resources and a custom designed environment enabling partnership working across research, academia and business.

Collaboration at the heart of our Campus

When designing the Campus, we wanted a site that could provide space - inside and out - to help businesses link up with others, spark new ideas and be inspired by their physical surroundings. The opportunity to easily work together has meant that knowledge is more accessible and easily shared.

What we’ve found whilst developing the Campus, and watching it grow apace with new organisations taking residence here, is that having a great mix of companies, researchers and academics together in one location, produces a plethora of new ideas that can be translated into  action and lead to fast paced innovations, inventions and discoveries, as well as growth and employment opportunities. It’s all about exchanging knowledge, learning from it and turning it into reality. 

Scotland’s approach to the life sciences sector is characterised by a collaborative spirit. And here at the Campus this spirit is strong  and continues to attract and anchor businesses to the region.

Encouraging collaboration through shared spaces

One of the many ways the Campus promotes collaboration is through the provision of shared working spaces. Our purpose built Campus has a number of buildings, each serving a different purpose for those located here.

The Centre for Health Science

The Centre for Health Science was designed specifically to encourage interaction between the people within it and is a key part of the nucleus of life science organisations located within the wider Inverness Campus. Developed by Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and now owned by the University of the Highlands and Islands, it provides a focus where public, private and academic sectors are co-located. At the Centre, you can study at one of the two universities located there, attend clinical training courses, host an event or locate your business within it.
