Inverness Campus: a world class location

Inverness campus is a 215-acre site in the Highlands of Scotland. Bringing together life sciences, healthcare, technology academia, the public sector and the NHS, this location is the perfect place to collaborate and innovate. 100 acres of the site have been developed, with future developments still to come.

A thriving community of technology and life sciences companies, academia and the NHS

The campus is already home to 16 life sciences companies, including those in animal health, medical technologies and remote health. It also sits beside LifeScan, one of Scotland’s largest life sciences companies. As a result, you’ll have access to a range of supply chain opportunities, collaboration opportunities and existing life science skills.  

It’s also home to two universities – the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) and Scotland’s Rural College.

Nearby is the Raigmore Hospital – the largest hospital in the area – and the state-of-the-art elective care centre (National Treatment Centre Highland), specialising in Ophthalmics and Ortheopaedics. It serves the entire north of Scotland and offers opportunities for clinicians and university researchers to work closely together. If you’re looking for close links with the NHS, this will be hugely beneficial to you.  

While the campus is aimed primarily at companies working on technology, innovation and research, there’s some planning in place for light industrial activity as well. The nearby Inverness Airport Business Park can accommodate larger manufacturing development.
