As part of Scotland’s leading technological university, we are committed to teaching critical thinking and cutting edge methodological skills.
We combine excellence in research and real world engagement through our Centres and Collaborative Projects.
The European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.
The Centre for Energy Policy is an independent expert voice on energy, working across disciplines to shape policy for a low carbon economy. The Centre generates world-leading research insights with real policy impact around a wider view of energy policy. We take an agnostic, evidence-driven position on technologies and policy instruments and provide a platform for debate and collaboration across disciplines, institutions, sectors and policy domains.
