Edinburgh and Life Sciences

Edinburgh is at the centre of Europe’s life sciences community, with research facilities widely regarded as among the best in the world. It’s home to organisations like the Roslin Institute, Edinburgh BioQuarter and Pentlands Science Park, and leads the way in research and innovation in the fields of human and animal health, agritech and related technologies. That makes the city a unique environment, where international colleagues across the sector can come together to further their knowledge and see for themselves the latest advances in the field.
