Life Sciences is a global market and we will increase the number of Scottish companies and organisations successfully operating overseas, and promote Scotland as a location of choice for Life Sciences, building on existing networks and connections and creating new strategic relationships.


  • Leverage Scotland’s networks We will maximize the use of our existing network of contacts and information within the Scottish Life Sciences community (industry, academia, and government) to enable and facilitate business development across the sector with overseas organisations, helping to create “international“ SMEs.
  • Promote Life Sciences in Scotland We will continue to actively promote Scotland as a leading Life Sciences location, ensuring that we market, support and highlight the success of our companies, research base, health service innovations and clinical research.
  • Develop an international mindset We will continue to support our company base to raise their ambition and confidence to exploit international markets and opportunities by sharing valuable in-market experience and international networks.
