University of Dundee

Economic Impact

The School's global reputation for research excellence has enabled us to forge important strategic partnerships and attract inward investment from industrial collaborators, spin-out companies and in-house service units.

This has had significant local impacts, stimulating the emergence of a regional biotechnology cluster which makes a major contribution to the Tayside economy and currently accounts for 16% of local jobs.

Start-ups and Spin-outs

We have a successful record in launching spin-out companies which has helped drive the establishment of a Tayside biotechnology industry.
