Abstract

The United Nations' 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) envisage a future of inclusivity, justice, opportunity, and prosperity, whilst maintaining environmental limitations. Universities play a central role in promoting these values, towards equitable, peaceful, and productive societies. In Scotland, the government’s National Performance Framework’s eleven outcomes evidence relevant rhetoric of resonance across education and industry sectors, allowing pragmatic partnerships and progress to be made.

Focussing on SDGs 4 (Quality Education) and 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), this paper examines the current landscape and activities of Scotland's enterprising universities in fostering social equality and positive economic outcomes. Furthermore, the paper investigates the multifaceted relationship between universities, enterprise ecosystems, and SDG-focused initiatives.
