Why work with SHIL?

There are lots of reasons why SHIL are in the best possible position to asssit you. Some of these reasons are listed below:
  • SHIL is the only organisation set up to work alongside NHS Scotland to carry out commercialisation activities.

  • Although SHIL works very closely with the NHS, we remain an independent organisation with the freedom to operate commercially.This removes the financial risk of product development from the NHS and opens up more potential for the development of NHS Scotland intellectual property.

  • SHIL has been instrumental in helping NHS Health boards in Scotland develop policies that ensure that inventors receive a share of the financial income generated from SHIL projects.

  • The SHIL business development team come from a variety of different scientific backgrounds. We have a broad range of technical, product development and project management skills making us ideally placed to take your project further.

  • The risk of developing the product is removed from the NHS. Both NHS Scotland and the inventors interests are protected.

  • SHIL recoups the costs involved in the development of a project gradually once it is on the market and generating income.
