Supercharging the Innovation Engine

DDS Deputy Director Dr Paul Chapman recently presented at BioCity Scotland’s April 28th Supercharging the Innovation Engine event.

This two day conference brought together leaders at the cutting edge of innovation in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry and provided a forum for the exchange of ideas and for making new connections. Paul’s presentation on computer graphics and its application to Pharmacy and Dentistry was pretty well received. Other talks covered topics included creative thinking, bridging the university-industry gap and how partnership working is essential to driving innovation forward at strategic and practical levels. More information on the event can be found at Supercharging the Innovation Engine.

Funded Masters Study

There are a number of places available for funded Masters study at the Digital Design Studio for study in 2015-16.

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply early to try to secure these places!

On all programmes there are a number of SFC (Scottish Funding Council) fee-waivers available – these cover the full costs of fees for Scottish (ordinarily resident in Scotland, not Scottish by birth!) and EU citizens. Additionally, there are a number of scholarships available – these vary, but mostly cover a portion of fees.

Notable this year are British Council supported GREAT scholarships which make a significant contribution to fees for students from India.

We currently still have limited funded places available on all of the Masters programmes:
