South of Scotland Destination Alliance has joined forces with Interface to deliver a webinar designed to raise awareness of available opportunities to provide support for tourism businesses with innovative ideas for growth and sustainability within Scotland.  


Based regionally throughout Scotland and with connections into all Scotland’s universities, research institutes and colleges Interface offers a free and impartial service and works with businesses of all sizes, in all sectors, to match them to world-leading academic expertise, research, technologies and specialist facilities. Interface can also provide advice and support on a range of funding programmes to help offset the cost of projects including the Innovation Voucher funding programme designed to support business / academic projects.  


Join us on Tuesday May 17th where we will touch on how Interface and academic projects can support your business challenges.  The scope is endless so projects covering diversification, adaptation through many areas such as – new product development; marketing strategies and reaching new audiences; enhancing visitor experience through digital innovations; strategic models, business planning and ways in which to embrace the circular economy/sustainability/improve green credentials are all possible to name but a few.


In this session we will also hear from Julia Muir Watt, Development Manager at The Whithorn Trust. Julia has been connected to multiple Scottish Universities through the Interface service and will talk us through her experiences and the benefits realised to the organisation.
