Glasgow City Council has confirmed that it will be providing £1million to the project that aims to transform the area along the river, stimulate development of vacant land and office space, and create up to 4,000 additional jobs.
The £80million Clyde Waterfront Innovation Campus will act as a centre of excellence for a range of new technologies. It will feature a James Watt Nanofabrication Centre as well as Precision Medicine Living Laboratory, with a flexible space where companies can co-locate, carry out collaborative research and develop new products.
Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council and chair of the Glasgow City Region City Deal Cabinet, said: "The Clyde Waterfront Innovation Quarter will bring thousands of jobs to communities on the banks of the river, and the Innovation Campus will help to unlock the enormous potential of these sites in Govan. The City Deal funding the council has now approved will help deliver a facility that will further enhance Glasgow’s reputation as a leading city in technology and innovation, attract investment, and deliver inclusive economic growth."
