Glasgow is a hotbed of innovation

Success stories

Glasgow’s an international centre of engineering and science excellence

Whilst Glasgow is globally recognised as a vibrant city of culture and the arts, retail and architectural splendour, it’s less well known as a leading international destination for scientific discovery and innovation.

What is Glasgow City of Science?

Glasgow City of Science is a pioneering partnership that aims to ensure everybody in the city region benefits from science and technology.

It recognises the importance of communicating science as part of Glasgow and the West of Scotland’s heritage and culture.

The emergence of the Glasgow City of Science initiative signalled a commitment from multi-sector partners to work smarter together to leverage the region’s scientific potential as a major driver of sustainable economic development.

It is based in Scotland’s largest city, which is a focus for innovation and great place to invest. A city with great people and a high level of education and skills. A city committed to the growth sectors of the economy, all of which have a science element.

Take a look at our Sectors

Glasgow City of Science is focused on promoting cross-disciplinary projects that use science and innovation to tackle real-world challenges. Here are some examples that demonstrate the diversity of scientific activity happening across Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
