The electronics industry in Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Electronics is amongst the fastest growing industries worldwide. Although investment from abroad is both welcome and necessary, the international and regional competition for such investment is becoming much fiercer. This means that it is vital to sell existing strengths, particularly in semi-conductors and systems. However, as California has demonstrated it is via the link between innovations/entrepreneurs and venture capital that most growth comes. This briefing paper provides a history of the electronics industry in Scotland, its current performance and its future prospects.
