Aberdeen City Council, UK
Aberdeen is a thriving and cosmopolitan Scottish city with a buoyant economy that is driven by the energy, technology and life science sectors. The city region effortlessly combines the bustle of city living with easy access to stunning mountain and coastal scenery. The region is consistently recognised as having the highest quality of life in Scotland. With a population of 203,000 and unemployment rates that are consistently lower than the national average, we have a lot of great things going for us.
Aberdeen is a city of international significance being, after Houston Texas, the 2nd Energy City. Aberdeen is the North East of Scotland's economic hub, a vital economic engine for Scotland and a major contributor of both tax and export revenues to the United Kingdom (UK) as a whole.
Aberdeen City Council has a very successful track record as a partner developing and delivering a range of European-funded projects that have provided real added value to the City.
It is a partner or lead partner on a number of European Union transnational projects that have brought Interreg funding to enhance Aberdeen's environmental development.
