HIAP Portal is Moving

What’s changing and why 

Our services will soon be transferred from the Health Innovation Assessment Portal (HIAP) portal to a new, public sector wide portal called Scotland Innovates website. 


What you will have to do to continue to use our service in future 

If you have already submitted a solution on HIAP, it will be processed on HIAP and you should not enter it again on the new Scotland Innovate site. There is currently no intention is to transfer information on all historic submissions to the new portal. 

New submissions will require to be submitted on Scotland Innovates, following the change in platform. Anyone wishing to register as an innovator to submit a solution will be redirected to register on the new Scotland Innovates website and submit their innovations. 

All our resources, news and other publications will be available on the Scotland Innovates website, alongside similar publications from the wider public sector colleagues.
