Abstract

The Scottish referendum of 2014 encouraged massive public debate, including on Scotland’s scientific performance and its ability to harness innovation and increase global competitiveness. The science base in Scotland has traditionally been strong with world leading universities driving development of science. However, the science base has not translated well into innovation. This paper uses statistical data, over 30 interviews and two workshops/focus groups with business and policy leaders to analyse the key scientific and industrial dynamics feeding into the debate and investigate the potential impact of enhanced autonomy on the Scottish innovation system.
