Funding has been acquired from both National and European bodies: Scottish Enterprise, the UK Technology Strategy Board (TSB), European Framework Programme 7 (FP7) and European Competitiveness and Innovation (CIP) Framework Programme.
As an experienced manager of collaborative projects, IES have worked closely with industry partners, academic institutions and research organisations. Through joint research and development, industrial partners have the opportunity to engage with IES and develop their own business, while academic collaboration and sponsorship of Postgraduate and Postdoctoral research allows us to benefit from state of the art research and third party validation of new technology and developments.
We have been successful in producing a number of commercially viable products as a result of IES R&D projects. Notable examples include the IMPACT Compliant Suite, ERGON (SCAN), OPTIMISE and the Glasgow Energy App (Glasgow Future Cities).
