Life sciences is a key growth sector for North East Scotland with proven strengths in biologics, health data science, drug discovery and medtech. ONE Life Sciences, the sector board of private sector economic development body Opportunity North East (ONE), is acting and investing to double the number of companies in the region through the development and delivery of the £40m Bio-therapeutics Hub for Innovation investment project in Aberdeen, which will open in 2021. The Bio Hub, led by ONE, is backed with £20m of capital funding from the UK Government and Scottish Government through the Aberdeen City Region Deal, a partnership between Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council and ONE. ONE has also committed £3.6m of its own funding over seven years to operate the Bio Hub and deliver bespoke commercialisation and growth support in the sector.
ONE works with companies and partners, including the University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University and NHS Grampian, to create links between academics, clinicians and industry to build the cluster and its ambition.
