Roslin Innovation Centre

The location of the Roslin Innovation Centre, at the heart of the University of Edinburgh's Easter Bush Campus, allows for the natural development of business collaborators with laboratory and office space situated close to the science and clinical livestock expertise.

Roslin Innovation Centre opened in August 2017 with an occupancy of over 60% already committed.


This new development is a key component of the overall Master Plan for Easter Bush, produced in 2008, and it forms an integral part of the significant investment being made by the University of Edinburgh in the Campus.

"The Easter Bush Campus provides a dynamic working environment within an accessible, rural setting offering an idyllic work life balance for all of our staff, students and tenants."

Val White, Campus Operating Officer, Easter Bush Campus

Facilities and Services 

Roslin Innovation Centre offers flexible office and laboratory space with accommodation for over 285 laboratory workstations and office space for up to 380 scientists.

Each of the laboratory spaces have been carefully designed so that they can be subdivided into any configuration, whilst still maintaining shared access to the support areas and changing facilities. Like the laboratory space, the office areas can also be subdivided into any configuration, whilst maintaining access to break out areas and meeting rooms.

There is dedicated car parking, cafeteria facilities and flexible occupancy terms.

“The Roslin Innovation Centre will provide companies with state-of-the-art facilities, first class customer service and accelerated access to strategic research opportunities."

John Mackenzie, CEO of Roslin Innovation Centre
