At the DHI we are inspired Scotland’s reputation for game changing innovations. With world-class universities and a collaborative community that are at the leading edge of technology we hope to add more life saving innovations to this great list.
There were many great innovations driven by Scottish talent going back many hundreds of years. Let’s get started in the 1800’s when Scotland was busy changing the world with inventions and discoveries that have impacted on how we live our lives today.

Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail, but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather than to myself.
The twentieth century was a hot-bed of invention and innovation. Not only a century of turbulence but we also saw a tremendous increase in the pace of developments across medicine and technology which Scotland contributed significantly towards.
Of all the small nations of this earth, perhaps only the ancient Greeks surpass the Scots in their contribution to mankind.
This brings us to our 21st century world where Scotland has continued its tradition of innovation. With Scottish universities offering outstanding opportunities for cross collaboration with like-minded, passionate people from all over the world we have a pool of talent ready to lead us towards even greater innovations.
