About the Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering (SRPe)
University research pooling was launched by the Scottish Funding Council in partnership with the Scottish universities in 2004 to provide the platform for our universities to collaborate at a more strategic level, pooling their expertise and resources, to further build upon Scotland's research excellence and international competitiveness.
The Scottish engineering pool was originally structured around three regional partnerships: the Edinburgh Research Partnership in Engineering (ERPe), the Glasgow Research Partnership In Engineering (GRPe) and the Northern Research Partnership In Engineering (NRPe).
In 2016, to provide increased critical-mass and overall impact from Scottish university-led engineering research, the three Scottish regional pools were consolidated into a single pan-Scotland pool to become the Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering (SRPe).
SRPe drives research impact creating value for the economy through a cohesive pan-Scotland strategy. Our integrated collaborative research community across ten universities provides the depth and breadth of specialist and cross-disciplinary expertise to tackle the most complex of technological and societal challenges.
