Our partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has received its highest accolade yet; this time at the Innovate UK KTP Best of the Best Awards 2019.  We were shortlisted in two categories; Best Knowledge Transfer Partnership Award and the Engineering Excellence Award. At the Awards Ceremony at the Royal Society of Chemistry in London on 2nd May, we nailed it when our collaboration, the only Scottish partnership shortlisted, was recognised as the Best Knowledge Transfer Partnership in the UK!

Four years ago, we established our Research and Development department in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University’s School of Computing and Engineering.  The department continued to expand as the potential of the initial research evolved and has supported a number of projects including two separate KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) projects which have been at the core of our work.

Throughout these four years, GCU’s Head of Computing, Professor Gordon Morison and Geckotech’s Dr Mark Jenkins have been applying their expertise in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision to structural condition monitoring.  We are hugely excited at just how far the practical application of this research will take us; there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel and the sky really is the limit!
