Park joins UK cluster

A Midlothian science and technology park has joined a national grouping.

Edinburgh Technopole is part of a portfolio of six science and technology parks, assembled by LaSalle Investment Management, which started operating as a single entity last week.

The BEST Network (the Business Environments for Science and Technology Network) is the largest privately-owned portfolio of science and technology parks in the UK.

Its members accommodate around 250 tenant companies and 7,500 employees.
