Collaboration & careers with Industry
A showcase of most tenant companies at Roslin Innovation Centre.
Our campus neighbour Roslin Innovation Centre (RIC) is a hub for companies undertaking strategic, commercial and collaborative research in the animal and veterinary sciences, agri-tech and One Health industries.
RIC invited all staff and students of the Roslin Institute and Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies to attend their annual Tenant Showcase on 27th June 2019. The event was organised in collaboration with our Knowledge Exchange & Commercialisation team as well as Professor Bruce Whitelaw (Deputy Director for partnerships).
This has been a great opportunity to find out more about opportunities for collaboration with or working at industry. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness of the capabilities and interests of those working in the Innovation Centre, to encourage and support academic-industry engagements and collaborations, and to highlight the potential career opportunities available outside academia, in the agri-tech environment and on their doorstep!
The event - moderated by John Mackenzie, CEO Roslin Innovation Centre - included 12 industry presentations, followed by lunch and networking opportunities, with companies holding trade stands.
In the afternoon, interested attendees were provided with a workshop where they learned about details of a new funding call.
