Faculty of Science Working with business & industry

Links with industry ensure that our research is relevant and of benefit to the community and commerce.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

The Faculty takes part in a number of KTPs, supported by the West of Scotland KTP Centre. Examples of the Faculty's KTP's include:

Industry-based doctoral training

The Faculty has also developed an innovative industry-based doctoral training programme with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The original programme enabled GSK employees to work towards a higher research degree through their work-based research projects; success in this venture has led to creation of an expanded programme including GSK-sponsored research students. For further details see our GSK brochure . Details of collaborative research opportunities across the Faculty can be found in our Research: Focus on Industry brochure.
