Glasgow Caledonian University is capitalising on its key areas of research with the development of new technologies, enabling companies and investors find the best new technologies to help grow their own businesses.
Current technology licensing opportunities include:
Transformers play a key role in the transmission and distribution network, getting power from source to end-user, so any fault is critical and needs to be identified before any damage to the transformer or surrounding components leads to a power blackout or catastrophic failure.
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has developed novel, patented technology that allows multiple parameters relating to the condition and performance of HV transformers to be measured simultaneously. Find out more about High Voltage Condition Monitoring
Mobile devices are a pervasive part of modern living. As these devices become more sophisticated, the size and complexity of the data transferred introduces a number of performance issues for the user.
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has developed a new telecommunications method to improve the performance of broadband mobile.
The Embedded Convolution Modulation Technology (ECM) addresses the information-transfer speed problems which currently exist on wireless mobile networks. Find out more about Embedded Convolution Modulation
Solids Mass Flow Measurement by a Thermal Method
Pneumatic transportation of bulk solids continues to be important in many industrial processes. There is a need for accurate, reliable, on-line, continuous and non-invasive measurement of solids’ mass flow rate where mass and energy balances are required in industrial, pharmaceutical and commodity transfer processes in order to achieve efficient utilisation of energy and raw materials.
The Thermal Solids Mass Flow-meter invented and being developed at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) can in principle provide direct mass flow measurement of solids-gas two-phase flow irrespective of the flow regime and velocity distribution in the conveying pipeline.

Novel Optical Concentrator for BIPV Systems
Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) solar concentrator systems not only generate electricity, but also allow the transformation of ambient light and the use of cogenerated heat for various functions.
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has developed a novel optical concentrator capable of providing gain on two planes. Such a concentrator can be used in a non-tracking wall mounted BIPV system. Find out more about BIPV
DCV is an off-road vehicle able to negotiate variable terrain, comprising a cabin section, which is set on the hub body, in addition to a plurality of arms able to move independently of each other to give the vehicle different footprints. The vehicle has the ability to extend the arms equipped with wheels, individually propelled by electric motors. Find out more about Dynamically Configured Vehicle (DCV)
University Technology (UT) is a pan-Scottish university initiative that was originally launched in March 2004 by Scotland’s universities as part of a collaborative effort to showcase new technology opportunities from Scotland’s academic research base.
