We work with academics in our School of Health and Life Sciences; School of Engineering and Built Environment; and Glasgow School for Business and Society to offer businesses access to a wide range of expertise.

Consultancy projects can help you develop new products or processes and increase your competitiveness. Our consultancy services include the analysis of existing processes, technology innovation expertise, experimental design, testing and development projects, expert witness services and consumer behaviour research. Projects have included high voltage condition monitoring, analysis of the performance of building materials, tourism monitoring, financial management training and shelf life testing.

The University has a long tradition of conducting research that is economically and socially relevant, applying new knowledge to problems of global significance in areas such as health, the environment and economic development.

You can access expertise to help drive your organisation forward, or work with us on collaborative research projects.

GCU is a partner in SFC-funded Innovation Centres, including the DataLab, the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, 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.   

We have three Research Institutes which encourage multi-disciplinary cross-GCU research activity.
