It will be a welcomed announcement to the tech sector which has been hard hit by the pandemic with many warning that they might not survive it.

The Scottish Government has already spent £4 billion tackling the effects of COVID-19. The Scottish Government hopes that this £230m, named the Return to Work package, will boost the green recovery, speed up digitisation and bolster construction, supporting hundreds of jobs.

It is expected that the funding will be targeted at firms working at business parks such as Edinburgh BioQuarter and the Michelin Innovation Parc, as well as the regeneration project at Ravenscraig.
