At Interface, we are passionate about the power of collaboration and innovation to drive progress and transform industries. That is why we are proud to celebrate World Creativity and Innovation Day on 21st April, a day that recognises the critical role that creativity and innovation play in shaping our society.

As an organisation we specialise in connecting the business community with academia across Scotland. We have seen first-hand the power of collaboration enabling people to access specialist expertise, facilities, and research and development opportunities to drive innovation and growth.

The range of expertise and facilities in the academic landscape across Scotland is staggering. It is home to some of the best research facilities in the world. Explore just a few of the vast range of specialist facilities and supporting technical resources which may be of benefit to you:

  • Greenhouses – Greenhouses, GroDomes, glass houses and plant growth chambers are designed to create specific environmental conditions all year round.
  • Nutrition Labs – Nutrition Labs can support research into diets, foods, ingredients, and supplements with highly specialised equipment to help analyse carbohydrates, fats, glucose, cell structures and proteins​.
  • Manufacturing – Our HEI’s can help with manufacturing research & development by testing and developing different processes and techniques. There is a vast range of industry specification equipment to support manufacturing processes across all sectors.

Through our collaborative approach, we have helped businesses across a range of industries to create groundbreaking innovations, develop new technologies and find new ways to solve problems.

But the power of innovation and creativity extends far beyond just developing new products and services. The U.N explains that innovation and creativity are also key drivers of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), enabling us to find fresh solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges, such as poverty, hunger, and climate change.

As we celebrate World Creativity and Innovation Day, we are reminded of the power of collaboration and the critical role that innovation plays in shaping our future. Whether you are an entrepreneur, a researcher, or simply someone with a passion for making a difference, we invite you to join us in embracing the spirit of innovation and working together to build a better future for everyone.
