Economic impact

Our economic impact on the city of Glasgow, on Scotland and on the rest of the UK is impressive.

  • For every £1 of Scottish Government funding we generate £8.37 of output
  • We sustain almost 15,000 jobs in Scotland
  • We sustain more than £1.5bn of output across Scotland
  • Our spin-out companies created in the last ten years have supported around 500 full-time equivalent jobs each year and produce £130m GVA (gross value added) across Scotland. The 139 licences that we hold generate licence income of £1.2m per year.
