Stevenson Hails Vision for Scottish Innovation

SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, Stewart Stevenson, has hailed the Scottish Government’s ambitions for Scotland’s Innovation Centre Programme.

Mr Stevenson spoke during a Parliamentary debate on the contribution Scotland’s innovation centres can make to driving innovation in key sectors of the economy. Mr Stevenson’s contribution emphasised the important role innovation centres can have in bringing thinkers together and allow them the space to innovate and collaborate.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“Innovation is one of the basic drivers of economic success. The thing is, it isn’t instant – it’s a process. Massive leaps in innovation are usually the product of years of preparation and threads of knowledge coalescing to finally create something new.”

“If we want to assist that process, we need to create the right environment for it. We need to give people the right space, support and avenues for collaboration. Only by creating that environment can we continue to generate cutting edge thinking.

“The Scottish Government is empowering our innovation centres specifically for this process. We are creating the environment that will allow different minds to come up with those revolutionary ideas that will be so important to our future. Scotland’s innovators have huge potential and I’m glad to see we’re taking this journey with them.”
