Join us for breakfast to hear from guest speaker, Dr SiobhÃ¡n Jordan, Director of Interface Scotland and veski resident for 2015, discuss how Interface fosters tangible results.
Dr Siobhán Jordan will discuss how Interface succeeds as an impartial central point of access matching company requirements to world leading academic research, funding collaborations, engaging industry sectors through multi-company collaborations and innovation centres, and influencing policy and development for the Scottish and UK Governments.
Interface connects business with Scottish universities and Research Institutes by translating company needs to academic opportunities, offering financial support, consultancy and knowledge transfer, work-based learning, sponsored studentships, licensing and research programs. It facilitates over 180 collaborative programs a year, and for more than two thirds of these businesses it is their first collaboration with academia. The economic impact of Interface’s collaborations has been independently forecasted to just under £80 million GVA per year and 2,400 jobs.
