“Their openness when working with industry has put Dundee firmly on the world’s scientific stage.”

Together we are stronger

When we share knowledge and ideas, the impact of our research becomes stronger.  

Over the years we have grown a strong network of local and global partnerships and collaborations with companies such as Boehringer Ingelheim, CERN, SSEN, GlaxoSmithKline, Rautomead, Pfizer and Mozilla Foundation. These relationships allow us to take research further – turning ideas into cutting edge and pioneering commercial realities. Our partnership collaborations have contributed to some of the largest research breakthroughs and discoveries in the world.

84% of our research was assessed as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'
