The academic partners in the Glasgow Research Partnership in Engineering are Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and the University of Strathclyde.
The partnership represents an exciting model for research development. Building on the existing strengths and expertise of the partner institutions, the significant investment within the programme from government and the universities themselves will enable new international research talent to be attracted to the West of Scotland and major new capacity to be developed in key areas of engineering research enquiry.
This new critical mass will maintain the competitive position of Engineering in the West of Scotland and deliver a major boost to research, ensuring our research communities and our industry are well-placed to compete globally for the long-term.
The West of Scotland partnership is one of three major Engineering research collaborations created and supported through the Scottish Funding Council (SFC): the Northern Research Partnership, Edinburgh Research Partnership and the GRPE collectively form the Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering (SRPE). Through SRPE, key integrated strategic research themes have been defined and developed by leading international experts from each partnership. Together, through the research pooling programmes, the regional partnerships will drive up the research competitiveness of Scotland as a whole, ensuring that Scotland is able to compete successfully on a worldwide stage.
