Our goal is to build on proven research and innovation success to create new clusters of economic activity including in Drug Discovery, Medical Technologies and Forensic Science

Our excellence in science and research will be harnessed to drive economic and health benefits for Tayside and improve the delivery of safe justice outcomes locally, nationally and globally.

We will create new jobs, new spin-out companies, attract major businesses to the area and opportunities for Tay Cities citizens to enter the innovation economy and business sector.

We are ranked among Europe’s most innovative universities and have an outstanding track record of working with institutions and companies across the region.

We will harness this track record of innovation from decades of scientific discovery to raise productivity, increase employment, deliver improved health outcomes and foster a fairer and safer society for the Tay Cities region, and beyond.

We are at the heart of the Tay Cities region and have a clear mission - to transform lives, locally and globally, by the creation, sharing and application of knowledge.

It is a mission that resonates with the vision of the Tay Cities Deal for a transformed local economy that is both stronger and fairer.

We believe that the Tay Cities Deal is both an opportunity to be seized and a responsibility to be met. We are proud to be involved in a partnership approach that is transforming the character and reputation of the Tay Cities Region.
