A great way to break the ice is to come and meet us at our Science @ Strathclyde Breakfast Club Meetings which are held every couple of months across the Faculty of Science.
Being an Innovator with a Knowledge Transfer Partnership
Beginning a new innovative project with plans for business expansion is an exciting task for a company, although it's not without its challenges, especially for a Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) with limited resources. Read Dr Neil Thomson's blog post about his experience with Rumbol Products and how they were able to overcome these challenges to succeed.
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 the 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
