The Scotsman reports that a new partnership has been established between the UK Government, Glasgow City Council and the Smart Things Accelerator Centre (STAC). The aim is to transform Glasgow into Europe’s largest smart tech innovation hub. It involves a £2.5m investment into a state-of-the-art facility called “the beyond” at SkyPark, Finnieston. The plan is to create an innovation leader in smart technologies. This will focus on industrial, lifestyle, health and sustainability technologies. Industry executives from major organisations such as Dyson, Plexus, Meta, Blackberry, Motorola and Volvo Cars are supporting the plans. The partnership projects that as many as 100 companies will be up and running by the end of 2024. A representative of Glasgow council said: “We will empower Glasgow’s start-ups to hone their technologies here and then compete internationally – bringing a great number of new jobs and careers in this sector.”
