Most Effective Initiative from a KTP Office, award supported by  Praxis Auril and inspired by David Woollard

The North of Scotland KTP Centre, based in Aberdeen, (which represents 6 individual KB partners, the University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University, University of the Highlands and Islands, Abertay University, University of Dundee and the James Hutton Institute) worked closely with Lorna Duguid, Development Director, Life Sciences, Opportunity North East (ONE) and lan Heywood, our local KTN KTA, to extend our already collaborative KTP Centre model approach and use KTP as part of a Catalyst for Regional Economic Growth in Life Sciences.

ONE is a private sector organisation driving transformational change in the regional economy of the North East of Scotland.

The KTP Centre’s Life Sciences initiative was originally developed in order to make a strategic diversification from our usual core of KTP projects, primarily in the declining Oil & Gas sector, and take advantage of our KB’s knowledge and expertise in Medical & Life Sciences, which we felt was being significantly underutilised. This objective fitted in well with ONE’s ambition to develop a life sciences cluster that is recognised nationally and internationally for excellence in biologics, by delivering innovative projects that aim to grow the sector and double the number of life sciences businesses in the region.
