When it comes to inspirational cities few can rival Edinburgh as a centre for forward-thinking innovation and collaboration. Nowhere is this showcased more than in the world leading universities and research centres found in the city.

A centre for excellence in medicine, science, and finance since the enlightenment and industrial revolution this forward-thinking mind-set has carried on and expanded. From the first demonstration of anaesthetics to a world leading National Robotarium, from the first cloned mammal to the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Centre, Edinburgh is a hive of creative activity.


We're proud to work with our city's universities as part of the Exchange Initiative Advisory Board.
