Industry and the private sector are the backbone of the economy, creating jobs, stimulating investment and driving sustainable inclusive economic growth. Within this, innovation is recognised as a critical driver of productivity and growth. It is an area in which there is a clear opportunity for Scotland and the UK to enhance economic performance and promote transformational change.
Our broad portfolio within this sector means that we regularly work with the enterprise and skills agencies and the Higher and Further Education sectors.
