Science & Innovation

The science & innovation parks and research institutes that make up the Midlothian Science Zone, create a collaborative cluster aimed at supporting and promoting the region’s science and research capability together with quality infrastructure, attracting research and technology companies to the area.

Pentlands Science Park, set in beautifully landscaped surroundings in Midlothian on the outskirts of Edinburgh. 


Midlothian Science Zone provides a supportive community and offers access to knowledge and expertise, resources and facilities, new technologies, accommodation and services, business support and networks across the animal health, life sciences and agri-tech sectors. 

The science and research hubs within Midlothian Science Zone are designed to accommodate and support knowledge intensive companies at every stage and facilitate access to regional world-class academic expertise and research across sector specialisms.

All sites and associated research institutes are within minutes of each other, with one of the world's top universities, The University of Edinburgh, easily acessible and located in the vibrant capital city.

Companies within bioincubators are almost twice as likely to secure investment, and the amount they receive is more than double that of non-bioincubator companies.
