GCU attends KTP Scotland Awards
GCU colleagues from CBS, the School of Engineering and Computing and the Department of Research, Innovation and Enterprise attended the KTP Scotland Awards at the Doubletree Dunblane Hydro last week.
The University was nominated for two Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Scotland Awards. Professor Bruce Wood’s work with Rawlplug Ltd, one of the leading manufacturers of specialist anchoring and fixing systems used in construction, industry and retail markets, was formally rated as outstanding by independent assessors as part of the KTP programme.
In CBS, the first KTP in Scotland on human resource management, led by Dr Gill Maxwell and Morag McLean of the Department of Management, was also nominated for a KTP Scotland Award. The KTP with Integrated Environmental Solutions Ltd (IES) was formally rated as very good.
