CITY OF INNOVATION

ANAESTHETICS, CHLOROFORM, ANTISEPTIC, ASTROPHYSICS AND DOLLY THE CLONED SHEEP – JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF INNOVATION AND INVENTION ASSOCIATED WITH EDINBURGH AND ITS ENVIRONS OVER THE CENTURIES. The city region has nurtured some of the world’s leading doctors, scientists, lawyers, engineers, architects and philosophers – and it continues to do just that. It boasts many centres of excellence that attract some of the world’s sharpest and most creative minds.

ARTS, CULTURE AND FESTIVALS Edinburgh is renowned the world over as ‘the festival city’ and enjoys a year round programme of exciting festivals featuring international artists, live music and inspiring exhibitions. The festivals are where people come together from across the globe to share their passion for arts, culture and ideas.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY World-renowned research institutes and universities combine to give Edinburgh its well-deserved global influence in many disciplines, including informatics, micro- and opto-electronics, energy, renewables, cleantech, electronics and life sciences. It is an acknowledged leader in technology convergence. The University of Edinburgh is ranked among the top in Europe, alongside Cambridge, Oxford and three in London.

Across the Edinburgh Science Triangle, there has been significant benefit from public sector investment resulting in: Edinburgh BioQuarter, a landmark £600m life sciences research and commercialisation development; the £42m purpose-built Informatics Forum at the University of Edinburgh; the new £60m Roslin Institute building and the University’s new Vet School at Easter Bush, one of the leading groups in the world focused on the biology and health of companion and production animals.

The Edinburgh International Science Festival and Film Festival are highlights in spring and major summer festivals include the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, Festival Fringe, Edinburgh Book Festival and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Autumn delivers the Storytelling Festival and the city sparkles with Winter Festivals culminating with Edinburgh’s Hogmanay – Europe’s largest New Year street party.

Edinburgh Science Triangle is a pioneering collaboration of universities, research institutes, science parks and local councils across Scotland’s historic capital and surrounding area. The main objective is to foster this community, to attract new investment and strengthen the links between academia and business. This dynamic community houses more than 3,000 world-class researchers, over 100 market-leading companies, across more than 370,000 sq m of flexible accommodation. The combined space of the Edinburgh Science Triangle parks places the ‘super campus’ amongst the 20 largest science parks in the world. With eight science and research locations all within 30 minutes of each other and located close to Edinburgh city centre, academic hubs and research institutes – Edinburgh Science Triangle is a major part of Scotland’s vibrant science and technology sector.

POLITICS, LAW AND FINANCE Edinburgh developed as Scotland’s legal and political centre and gained the status of ‘royal burgh’ from Robert the Bruce in the 14th century. It is home to the Scottish Parliament, the Scottish legal courts and numerous international consulates. Scotland has a distinguished history in financial services that dates back over 300 years and Edinburgh can lay claim to world-changing innovations including the mortgage and internet banking. Edinburgh is the UK’s second financial centre after London and Europe’s

fourth by equity assets. It is the only city other than London, in the UK, where you can find all sectors of financial services in operation, from retail banking to pensions to fund management to stockbroking. The first ever UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) opened its headquarters in Edinburgh – created to accelerate the UK’s transition to a green economy. Scotland has enormous green energy potential and this investment will unlock Scotland’s renewables future, providing sustainable and affordable green energy across the UK.

The arts are celebrated in the national collections of art, the tiny galleries, the awe-inspiring museums, theatres and many cultural institutions throughout Edinburgh. The city’s rich tradition of writing was recognised in 2004 when Edinburgh was named the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Edinburgh has an award-winning public bus service with modern vehicles and a frequent timetable in and around the city.

SCIENCE AND INNOVATION FOCUS IN STUNNING ENVIRONMENTS WHERE DISCOVERY, CREATIVITY AND TEAMWORK ALL FLOURISH. Edinburgh has a long history of innovation in science and commerce and the Edinburgh Science Triangle is one of Europe’s leading locations for research, innovation and commercial exploitation.

EDINBURGH TECHNOPOLE near Roslin, includes the period Bush House which is ideal for small events or those that require small gardens or extensive space for outdoor events or a marquee.

World-renowned research institutes combine with four universities to give Edinburgh its global influence in many disciplines, including informatics, micro- and opto-electronics, energy, renewables, cleantech, electronics and life sciences.

PENTLANDS SCIENCE PARK surrounds the world-famous Moredun Research Institute. It has a dedicated lecture theatre, a light and airy atrium and a boardroom with a terrace overlooking the landscaped park.

The science parks and innovation centres within Edinburgh Science Triangle are designed to accommodate and support knowledge-intensive companies at every life stage and facilitate access to world-class academic expertise and research. All the sites are within 30 minutes of each other, the universities and research institutes, and the lively city centre. The combined space of Edinburgh Science Triangle Parks places the “super-campus” amongst the 20 largest science parks in the world. Heriot-Watt Research Park is the largest and the first of its kind in Europe, where business is co-located on the same campus as the university and can take advantage of its extensive resources, including the Edinburgh Conference Centre – see separate entry.

ALBA INNOVATION CENTRE is a purpose built centre to the west of Edinburgh, close to the motorway hub and the airport. It is a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity and its facilities are ideal for workshops or team meetings. ROSLIN BIOCENTRE located in a parkland setting in the shadow of the Pentland Hills on the south side of the city, is a world leading ‘Centre of Excellence’ for Life Sciences. Home to a thriving scientific community it is able to host small seminars and meetings. THE ROSLIN INSTITUTE at the University of Edinburgh undertakes research within the framework of BBSRC Institute Strategic Programmes focussed on the health and welfare of animals. The Roslin Institute Building at the Easter Bush Campus offers a magnificent auditorium and meeting space.

Located in central Edinburgh, this category A listed, Victorian town house was built in 1891 for Arthur Sanderson, a wine merchant and whisky distiller who had bought a large collection of old-master paintings, antiques, porcelain and sculpture. The interiors were finely decorated by William Scott Morton, with each room individually designed according to the art displayed. Currently owned by Lowland Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association and the home of 603 (City of Edinburgh) Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force since 1925, this highly distinctive venue offers a unique range of traditional conference, meeting and event rooms for up to 50 delegates. The building benefits from wonderful views of the city and exclusive period features including

The Caves 8-12 Niddry Street South Edinburgh EH1 1NS t 0131 557 8989 e [email protected] w thecavesedinburgh.com

Every room has a story to tell and a special place in Scottish history – from vaults that served as the stables to the French Cavalry who were at one time body guards to the Royal Family, to remains of the houses that pre-date the Bridge itself – with the original terracotta floor tiles still intact! The site is mentioned in poems by Robert Ferguson and was the watering hole for the key figures in the Scottish Enlightenment and the original home to The Oyster Club.

This unique venue makes up the sub-structure of the 18th Century South Bridge. Owned and excavated by a former Scottish Rugby Internationalist, there is no venue more Edinburgh than the Caves, especially if you consider there was once so much whisky stored here that it became known as “Whisky Row”.
