Research and Innovation


Research is of central importance at the University of Strathclyde. As part of this landscape, we are committed to ageing-related research and innovation projects and have expertise in this field relating to psychology, education, and computer and information science.

You can view some highlights of our current age-related research projects here.

Strathclyde Ageing Network

In 2015, the School of Psychology set up the Strathclyde Ageing Network (SAN) in order to share and discuss ageing-related research being conducted throughout the university, from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. The SAN now has over 30 members and has supported knowledge exchange beyond the University of Strathclyde to other academic institutions and the wider community, including the Private, Public and Third Sectors. A list of SAN members and areas of expertise can be viewed here.

European Projects

The Centre for Lifelong Learning is currently a partner in several European Erasmus+ projects related to ageing and demographic change. Current and recent projects undertaken by the Centre for Lifelong Learning can be viewed here.

Get Involved

Due to the breadth of ongoing research projects throughout the University, we regularly require the participation of older adults to take part in research studies, pilot projects and focus groups. If you would like to join our group of research participants and be invited to take part in a range of interesting studies as and when required, please contact Gemma Gilliland to register your interest.
