Who we are
SCDI is a national network that brings together the public, private and third sectors together in a unique ‘think and do tank’ to build a better economy for Scotland.
Drawing on a 90-year heritage of meeting challenges, driving innovation and bold thinking, we encourage sustainable economic growth by looking at crucial topics like key infrastructure, innovation, productivity and internationalisation.
We are a trusted national and global voice that represents members from across the whole of Scotland. We bring people together from diverse sectors and industries, to connect, share knowledge and understand the challenges and opportunities of an increasingly complex and changing economic landscape.
Engage with us and:
- Shape Scotland’s future economy
- Access a rich network of public, private and third sector leaders
- Connect, inspire and influence on the local and world stage
- Understand policy direction and decisions and learn from diverse sectors and industries
