Accelerating your innovation process - Getting your product to market, smarter and quicker


Are you a Scottish SME, operating in high-value chemical or biochemical supply chains, looking for support to overcome innovation challenges, strengthening your business as we start to emerge from the current pandemic crisis? If so, the SCOUT project is here to help. 

Join our next event and learn how our Innovation Integrator® model is helping companies accelerate the journey from invention, through innovation to commercialisation. 

The strategic diagnostic tool assesses 12 factors that define and enable effective innovation to take place, helping companies create a clear picture of their delivery capability and an assessment of their innovation readiness. 

Coming up in the webinar

In this short webinar we will hear from Dr David Bunton, both CEO of REPROCELL Europe Ltd and Chairman of the Precision Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre.

David will discuss elements of the Innovation Integrator® process and how these have influenced the growth of REPROCELL, after which he will be joined by marketing, regulatory and industry experts on a panel discussion.
