SMART: SCOTLAND offers funding for research and development projects. From digital media and construction to life and chemical sciences, we support high-risk projects with global ambitions.

SMART: SCOTLAND offers funding for feasibility studies and research and development. We've so far provided £25.4 million to projects that have gone on to generate a further £54 million. 

A carbon wheelchair and a bionic hand are among the successful projects. Most recently, we've supported a musical instrument that anyone can play (regardless of disabilities), innovative approaches to hop infusion, and a humane way of keeping seals out of salmon farms. Pesky seals.

SMART: SCOTLAND fund projects all over the country.
