About ETP

 
ETP is the Scottish academic research pool for energy, an autonomous alliance of 13 independent Scottish HEIs, each with areas of outstanding research capability in the energy sector. It is a strategic partnership of Scotland's universities working in collaboration with innovation translators, industry and government to future-proof Scotland's position as a world-class centre of research excellence and globally competitive driving force in energy.
 
Its vision is to build on the existing areas of excellence and collaborative working to ensure that Scotland remains a globally competitive driving force in energy research & innovation and its commercialisation.
 
It creates value for the Scottish economy by acting as a broker between academia and external organisations and industry, promoting and disseminating ETP’s mission to translate excellent research and innovation into socioeconomic and environmental impact through collaboration, by:
  • Promoting and growing world leading research from an internationally competitive research base
  • Translating research for socioeconomic & environmental impact
  • Creating skills as a driver for economic growth
