New Eden Enterprise Hub Set to Boost Start-Up Business in Fife
Last month (February), Fife Council exchanged letters of intent with the University of St Andrews to jointly develop the Eden Enterprise Hub at the Eden Campus in Guardbridge. This collaboration will see the refurbishment of two buildings on the campus to create much-needed modern business premises for new and growing businesses.
The University of St Andrews’ Eden Campus is part of the Tay Cities Region Deal, which was signed by the Scottish Government, UK Government and all partners on 17th December 2020. Under the Deal proposals, up to £26.5 million will be invested in the Eden Campus, Guardbridge, that’s estimated to create around 500 new jobs and leverage in £110 million of other investment, as the former paper mill is redeveloped into a global research and innovation hub to help deliver a low carbon future.
Geoff Morris, Eden Campus Programme Director, University of St Andrews, said:
“Business support services will be delivered by the University of St Andrews to the occupiers of the new business space. This forms part of Entrepreneurial St Andrews, which is strengthening our engagement with industry, business, and policy makers. Our aim is to support innovation and deliver the education and skills that are needed for inclusive economic growth and to enable start-ups to become sustainable enterprises.”
