Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme.

As a subsidiary company of the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Research and Innovation Limited (ERI) has adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2015 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner.

This scheme has the Commissioner's approval until 31 May 2019.

ERI Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

The purpose of the Guide to Information is to:

  • allow you to see what information is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class;
  • state what charges may be applied;
  • explain how you can find the information easily;
  • provide contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information; and
  • explain how to request information we hold that has not been published.

If you require any further information, please contact Edinburgh Research and Innovation’s FOISA representative.
