Research Innovation Scotland

RIS logo

There is no single entity that can solve the complex and interconnected problems we face as a society. To overcome the grand challenges we face, collaboration and co-ordination across the Scottish research and innovation landscape is paramount. Research Innovation Scotland (RIS) has been created by the research pools (including SUPA) in collaboration with Scotland's Innovation Centres and Interface, and strives to depict a whole system view, to act as a catalyst for intersectionality, toward a better future; to build back better.

The RIS website is the place to go to see cross-pool and multi-disciplinary activities, case studies and funding opportunities.
