Pentlands Science Park is proud of the local and national partnerships it has developed.

It is a key partner in a unique alliance of science and technology centres known as the Midlothian Science Zone.  The Midlothian Science Zone is a world-leading centre of science and research excellence on the outskirts of Edinburgh; where world-renowned research institutes combine with a leading world-ranked research university to give the region its well-deserved global influence in many disciplines, including animal health, life sciences, biotechnology, agri-tech and aquaculture. The partnership provides a supportive community and offers access to knowledge and expertise, resources and facilities, new technologies, accommodation and services, business support and networks.  Its main objective is to foster a One Health community, increasing levels of collaboration between academia and business whilst raising the profile of world-leading research and access to state-of-the-art facilities.
