About the park

Edinburgh Technopole is a unique science and business park, specifically designed to offer the flexibility required by new, growing and established companies.

Set amongst 126 acres of mature parkland just eight miles south of the city centre, Edinburgh Technopole offers a wealth of flexible office, high specification laboratories and product development space; all with generous parking provision and excellent transport links.

A low-density development, Edinburgh Technopole is characterised by a parkland feel that creates a stimulating working environment. At the western end of the park lies Bush House, the former estate house which is now fully-restored, providing flexible serviced office accommodation and conference facilities.

High quality buildings are just one attraction. With access to an unrivalled pool of talented University students and a strong established scientific community that is growing significantly, Edinburgh Technopole has the complete support network in place for any business.


Edinburgh is a global leader in animal health, specialising in bioscience and arguably has the largest concentration of animal science related expertise anywhere in Europe. To harness this exceptional level of experience and intellect, a cluster of leading organisations have come together to form the Midlothian Science Zone.

The Midlothian Science Zone undertakes basic and translational science to tackle pressing issues in animal genetics and genomics, development, health and welfare and their implications for human health. This is truly collaborative and involves:

Edinburgh Technopole, Edinburgh University, the Roslin Institute, the Moredun Institute, Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.

Edinburgh University has initiated significant development over the last three years investing over £100 million pounds on new facilities for the new Roslin Institute, the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, the Animal Cancer Care Centre and the National Avian Research Facility (NARF).

However, it is not all animal science, occupiers at Edinburgh Technopole have access to the critical concentration of world-leading analytical research, innovation and funding opportunities.

Make your impact in Midlothian – the location of choice for companies undertaking strategic, commercial and collaborative research in a variety of animal and veterinary sciences; life sciences, agri-tech and a number of other science fields.
