Our Strategy

Innovating Together

Our strategy celebrates and informs Scotland’s growing reputation as a world-leading entrepreneurial and innovative nation and places health at the core. It underlines our commitment to working closely with the NHS, academia, industry, entrepreneurs and funders to encourage innovation and shape future healthcare in Scotland.

Innovating Together leverages and extends the vast experience InnoScot Health has gained since 2002 in inspiring, accelerating and commercialising impactful healthcare innovations.

It is focused on helping shape a highly adaptive, innovative NHS Scotland (NHS), while recognising that strong partnerships forged with academic institutions, funders, entrepreneurs and industrial partners are vital in supporting our mission.
