“To solve the challenges of the future we need to share our knowledge and work together to come up with new ways of doing things. ‘Research Innovation Scotland’ is doing exactly that, bringing together different disciplines, sectors, academics, and industry. At KTN, we very much look forward to working with the team in progressing this valuable initiative.”

Dr Alicia Greated, CEO, Knowledge Transfer Network

“Knowledge transformation is central to Scotland’s future success in the global market place and in tackling the 21st century’s grand challenges. As such, I am proud to support the RIS mission to drive more challenge-led, collaborative R&I with transformative impacts for both society and the economy. By working together and ‘re-wiring’ our rich research and innovation ecosystem – from academia and industry to the public and third sectors – we can ensure Scotland stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best performing innovation nations, whilst becoming more resilient and adaptive to the challenges of tomorrow.”
