Our internationally-renowned academics can share expertise in a wealth of topics – spanning engineering, technology, business, education, healthcare, sport, science, the media and social sciences. We can help with grant applications for innovation projects, hosting your events, and you can have access to UWS graduates and students to help with job, internships and placement opportunities that you are planning.
The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme has been helping businesses to innovate and grow for the past 40 years. It does this by linking them with a university and a graduate to work on a specific project. UWS has a proud and successful track record of working with businesses of all sizes in grant-funded partnership projects. We have been successful in KTPs for over forty years and have helped many companies innovate and grow through the scheme. Find out how a UWS KTP can help your business.
UWS is a key member of CeeD (Centre for Engineering Education & Development), which was formed in 2004 and was originally spun out from UWS to provide a unique offering in Scotland to support peer to peer learning and development opportunities across engineering and manufacturing businesses.
Tackling coronavirus together
There are many ways academics have been joining forces with industry and organisations to support our communities during the unprecedented coronavirus situation. Just one example is our work with Glenrothes-based semi-conductor company, Semefab. This partnership has seen UWS academics play a key role in the production of innovative thin film-based chips that will help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
