UWS / ETP Collaboration Clinic

The Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) in conjunction with University of the West of Scotland and CeeD, is delighted to host a half day meeting in October at the University’s Paisley Campus. The event will highlight the opportunity for Scottish SMEs to collaborate directly with Scottish academics on innovative projects within the low carbon energy sector.

Through the Knowledge Exchange Network (KEN), ETP can support SMEs to connect with universities and fund projects. Support is provided across seven thematic areas: Energy Conversion and Storage; Energy Systems; Energy Utilisation in Buildings; Heat Energy; Power Networks and Grid Technologies; Marine Energy and Wind Energy.

If you represent a Scottish SME and would like to know more about how you could access these academic facilities, why not come along and join us. You will hear about the ETP funding scheme and meet some of the University’s academics and ETP representatives who will be able to assist you with your technology needs.

During this event, UWS academics will present 4 case studies showing collaboration across a wide range of industries:

- Design and optimization of a tidal turbine (in collaboration with Linell Renewables)
- Design and optimization of a hydrogen cell (in collaboration with Peak Scientific)
- Optimization of micro algae cultivation conditions (in collaboration with Xanthella)
- Recovering waste energy in a restaurant (in collaboration with ChinChin)


Location Seminar Room, Paisley Campus, UWS, High Street, Paisley, PA1 2BE. Limited car parking is available in the visitor’s car
