Lana Scoot

PAPI project support

Lana has been involved in Economic Development projects at the University of York since 2013.  This included monitoring the Embedded Space and Technology Transfer project, which was the University's flagship ERDF project in the last funding programme (£38m project with £19m ERDF funding).

The project was a key initial development of the Heslington East Campus and funded the development of several key buildings (including the Ron Cooke Hub and the Catalyst) that provide support and facilities to businesses.

The project has supported companies to develop their businesses, as well as leading to the creation of 34 entirely new businesses.
