The Institutes bring together the research excellence of individuals and groups across the University to consolidate our success in attracting major grants, further develop collaborations with partners outside Scotland, and work with end-users in the public and private sectors.
We also work collaboratively as a partner in five SFC-funded Innovation Centres, including the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, the DataLab, the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC), CENSIS (The Centre for Sensors and Imaging Systems) and the Digital Health Institute, launched to stimulate university-industry innovation.
The Institute for Applied Health Research reflects a depth and breadth of expertise in Public Health and Long-term Conditions, including contributions from clinicians in a range of health professions and disciplines across GCU, as well as having research collaborations with universities all over the world.
The Institute for Society and Social Justice Research draws on expertise across sociology, criminology, law, forensic psychology, history, politics, public policy, business and management to support research themes in Social Innovation and Equalities and Justice.
The Institute of Sustainable Engineering and Technology Research undertakes research in a broad range of disciplines that ensures that we minimise the impact on our environment. Our research supports Sustainable Environments through the themes of Urban Environments and Efficient Systems.
