At the Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC) we are transforming the way academics, business, industry and the public sector work in partnership.
We are working together to find solutions to challenges that matter in areas of economic importance including advanced manufacturing & materials, health & wellbeing, innovation & entrepreneurship, measurement science & enabling technologies and ocean, air & space.
For over 200 years, we have developed a strong tradition of working closely with business and industry. We have grown our reputation for research excellence and high-quality teaching and learning. However our partnerships with industry are what sets Strathclyde apart from others, both in the UK and globally.
Today, these partnerships are being taken to a new level – challenging conventional thinking about collaboration, and helping support businesses to become more innovative on the global stage. Winning back-to-back prestigious awards, such as the Times Higher Education University of the Year and Entrepreneurial University of the Year, are a reflection of our impact on business and industry and a high profile endorsement of the strategy.
The Technology & Innovation Centre opens doors to new areas of research, innovation and technology development, all aimed towards creating new possibilities, new levels of dynamic collaborations and productive outcomes. Together, we are working on solutions to challenges in enabling technologies and the low carbon economy, including:
low cost, greener power and energy
photonics and sensors
At £89 million, the project is Strathclyde’s single-biggest investment in our research and technology collaboration capacity. Our innovative approach attracted financial backing from Scottish Enterprise, the Scottish Funding Council and the European Regional Development Fund who recognise the Technology & Innovation Centre’s potential to redefine the way Scottish Higher Education works with industry.
An alliance of the public and private sectors with academia, has established Glasgow as an internationally recognised location for research, development, design and engineering of renewables and a range of associated enabling technologies.
Strathclyde is a multi-award-winning university. We are delighted to be the only University to have won the Times Higher Education University of the Year award twice (2012 and 2019). Over the years we have been recognised across a variety of categories at the Times Higher Education awards. These include the coveted Business School of the Year and Workplace of the Year.
