Development Centres

Say hello

We’ve created two Development Centres offering innovators an exclusive space to test, develop, and refine their ground-breaking ideas. With live, operational-scale environments, our facilities are the perfect platform for validating and commercialising innovations.

Already our Development Centres are helping research hubs speed up innovation delivery, providing an investor-ready pipeline of new processes and products.

But that’s not all – we understand that collaboration is key to a sustainable future. That’s why we’re fostering partnerships between industry, academia, and the public sector.

Join us in shaping the future of innovation and together.

As the only facilities of their kind in Scotland, users have a unique chance to test and develop processes, equipment, and technologies in live conditions, and on an operational scale.

Our Development Centres enable users to showcase their innovations through scenario testing across a diverse range of applications. From proof of concept to prototype development, we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Our state-of-the-art labs operate year-round to meet all your testing needs. Our expert team specialise in a wide range of chemical and microbiological tests, conducted at our facilities in Edinburgh and Inverness.

But that’s not all – we understand the importance of convenience. If you need regular sampling, we can arrange for secure transportation of your samples directly to our labs. With our accredited testing solutions, you can trust us to deliver accurate results and peace of mind every time.

Through close partnerships with both businesses and academia, we’re dedicated to fostering a vibrant environment of knowledge-sharing and co-working.

And we go the extra mile to support your success. From insightful webinars to engaging demonstration events, we provide valuable platforms to showcase your latest products and ideas.
