Our first City Deal project has been delivered

As well as the infrastructure projects we are going to provide through City Deal, we have already delivered one through the innovation programme.

MediCity Scotland is a dedicated medical technology incubation facility based at Biocity Scotland Ltd in Newhouse. It has been created with the support of over £1million investment through funding from the UK Department of Business Innovation and Skills, which has been matched by contributions from BioCity Scotland Limited. As a Council we have also provided nearly £450,000 to support this initiative as we are keen to bring more medical-related enterprises to the area.

This state-of-the-art facility is a physical hub for new and existing medical technology and healthcare businesses in Scotland and will be a focus for expertise in the sector. It will bring together academics, entrepreneurs, clinicians and business support services to boost the development of new healthcare services and medical technology.

The refurbishment of a vacant building at the BioCity campus has created 11,000 sq ft of office space as well as much needed incubation workspace.

Over the next five years the facility aims to support up to 50 new medtech businesses and 150 jobs, develop links between the commercial and academic communities and showcase Scotland to inward investment opportunities in this growing field.
