Scotland is a country of five million people that punches well above its weight.
It has given the world television, the telephone and penicillin and is now blazing a trail in medicine, life sciences, engineering and renewables.
Our academic institutions are among the oldest in the world, but remain at the forefront of innovation and discovery whether pioneering in the introduction of stratified medicine or developing retinal prosthetics.
Scotland is one of the world’s super powers when it comes to renewables with a target of generating 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Little wonder, then, that there are 2000+ companies operating in the sector.
Likewise, our life sciences sector is one of the strongest in Europe with more than 650 companies and some 30,000 employees.
Scots work hard, but they also play hard making the most of the country’s spectacular scenery, exciting events and entertainment, fabulous food & drink and high-octane activities.
Scotland’s legendary hospitality is much in evidence wherever you go.
