EIE is our annual technology investor readiness programme and showcase, playing an integral part in the University’s delivery of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal.

In partnership with the Data-Driven Innovation Initiative, with the backing of the £1.3 billion Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, the programme supported the launch of spin-out companies, attracted start-ups, and has facilitated investment in established tech businesses – driving significant wealth creation and economic impact for Scotland.

EIE significantly helped Edinburgh in its pursuit to be Data Capital of Europe and Scotland to be recognised on the global stage as a pioneer and innovator in digital technology.
