UWS is continually developing and investing in technology and equipment to maintain our leading position in research. We see ourselves rooted in the local, national and global economies and are delighted to make our staff, facilities and equipment available to partners from business, industry and the public sectors for mutual advantage.
Our horizons are global and we deliver world-class research, but our primary focus is on working with local partners from across the University’s five campuses in Scotland and London.
University staff engage in a wide range of world class research and can disseminate findings or can undertake applied research with partner organisations on specific topics. Our staff have a wide range of specialist knowledge and are routinely available to assist organisations with feasibility studies, problem solving, consultancy and advice, research and development programmes, training programmes, analysis and testing. We also provide expert witness testimony in dispute resolution and ultimately in court proceedings.
Partners are able and welcome to access our student base, both to engage with student projects and for potential recruitment. Our students are a tremendous resource and are available to bring up-to-date knowledge and thinking, and new skills to your organisation, either on a short placement, project or graduate employment basis. We maintain specialist staff to enable matching and to manage student engagement to be a simple and rapid process.
Our range of specialist equipment and facilities is being updated constantly through targeted investment to ensure we have access to leading edge technology to support our world class researchers. Businesses, industry and the public sector can access these facilities too, through collaboration, partnership or commercial arrangement.Download now (18MB pdf)
