Scotland’s universities have world-class expertise in oil and gas, and we help businesses tap into it. Since our launch in 2014, 14 different Scottish universities have responded to our calls for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) in projects.

University-introduced projects

We’re open to supporting innovation ideas originating in a university, with an identified commercial partner(s). They must involve industrially-driven R&D and can be single company projects, multi company projects, ‘anchor’ support for new projects, or existing projects requiring support for the next phase.

Since introducing this scheme in 2017, we’ve approved more than five university-introduced projects. Get in touch if you have your own project proposal.

New connections

We’re always looking to make new connections with researchers at all career stages. Not just to help businesses turn innovation ideas into practice, but to develop the enterprise culture in Scotland’s universities.

If you’re a researcher at any Scottish university and you’re keen to support the oil and gas sector, get in touch.
