Providing Innovation in Cycling
From market research to product development, knowledge transfer, testing and product launches, MTBCoS assist businesses to capitalise on one of Scotland’s fastest growing adventure sports. MTBCoS is a centre for open innovation and has an extensive partnerships network which allows companies, both product and service based, access to national and international markets.
We provide 1 to 1 support for businesses looking to diversify into the cycling market, new starts with an innovative idea or established businesses looking to access our academic expertise.
If you have an idea that you think might just work, would like to find out more about diversification opportunities or would like to discuss testing of a cycling related product or other academic expertise, please get in touch.
We can provide 1 to 1 telephone and video conferencing support and are now starting to return to face to face meetings, when required.
MTBCoS is a project hosted by Edinburgh Napier University, with project partners Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland (Scottish Cycling) and Scottish Enterprise. The project is funded by the Scottish Government and Edinburgh Napier University and is a founding member of Cycling Industries Europe (the voice of cycling business in Europe). The partners in the project are currently working on the Final Business Case to establish the World’s First Mountain Bike Innovation Centre in a refurbished cashmere mill in the heart of the Scottish Borders (funding secured through the Borderlands Growth Deal).
