Partners involved in a £1.2m project to create six new innovation centres at colleges across Glasgow and the west of Scotland have met for the first time.

The Innovate UK-funded partnership brings together colleges including City of Glasgow, Glasgow Clyde, Glasgow Kelvin, New College Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire and West College Scotland to support the adoption of innovative business practices.

The event, held at City of Glasgow College, involved representatives of all the colleges, as well as potential stakeholders in the public and private sector, as part of the plans to support more than 200 businesses from across Glasgow, Inverclyde, North and South Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire, and West Dunbartonshire.

Attendees included representatives from Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Riverside Innovation District (GRID), Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Innovation Centre, BE-ST and NMIS , among others.
