The Clinical Innovation Zone, led by University of Glasgow is fully integrated within the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Queen Elizabeth University Hospital campus.
The Clinical Innovation Zone is also closely linked with the Glasgow Health Sciences Partnership (GHSP), a University of Glasgow and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde initiative to better integrate world-leading research, top quality education and expertise in clinical practice across these organisations.
Working closely with Glasgow City Council, the CIZ has become an anchor location for a much wider innovation lead investment strategy planned across the city of Glasgow, which will include a series of customized collaborative spaces for industry partners, start-ups and spin-outs to work alongside Glasgow’s world class academics.
The Waterfront and West End Innovation Quarter, which will further integrate CIZ research with the University’s £1billion major West End campus redevelopment, which includes the site of the former Western Infirmary. This increased connectivity of innovation will be physically embodied in a new bridge spanning the River Clyde, directly linking Govan and Partick, greatly benefitting local communities on both banks of the river.
