At Glasgow Caledonian University our research, consultancy and knowledge exchange activities are supported by the Research and Innovation Office. Our research and innovation staff support research funding applications, management of contractual agreements, project costing and engagement with business partners including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP).
KTP is funded by organisations including Innovate UK and the Scottish Funding Council. KTPs have been helping businesses for 40 years to improve productivity and competitiveness through the best use of knowledge, technology and skills. KTPs enable businesses to work with GCU’s academic experts to deliver a specific project or innovation solutions through this knowledge-based partnership.
Consultancy, collaborations and commercial opportunities are also supported and maintained by the research and innovation team. We ensure impactful sustainable knowledge exchange through social innovation. We provide effective metrics and procedures to record and evidence the University’s research and innovation activities.
Our aim is to attain research excellence by optimising the research output of academic staff whilst developing a dynamic culture of innovation amongst students and staff across the University.
