The Tay Eco-Valley is striving to be a leading eco-innovation living lab (user-centred, open-innovation eco-system) in the UK and Europe. The Tayside area including Perth & Kinross and it's neighbouring authorities are all part of the Tay Eco-Valley.

What is innovation? Not just re-inventing the wheel but the process by which ideas can be turned into a new or improved product, service or business process. Eco-innovation aims to create innovative products and processes that reduce environmental impacts.

Resource efficiency, low carbon and the circular economy are areas offering eco-innovation opportunities aimed at reducing environmental impacts and supporting sustainable business growth.

The key sectors such as Food & Drink, Tourism, Transport, Energy, Construction, Clean & Renewable Technologies can all benefit from and support eco-innovation and the Tay Eco Valley can assist with realising opportunities.
