University of Glasgow


The University of Glasgow has been inspiring people to change the world for over 550 years, fostering global connections and innovative partnerships while imparting far-reaching benefits to the local economy. Today our inspiring people are at the heart of detecting gravitational waves and at the forefront of global efforts to fight the Zikavirus.

In the top 1% of the world’s universities, our mission is to bring inspiring people together and create a world-class environment for learning and research, empowering staff and students alike to discover and share knowledge that can change the world. We are delighted to be a partner of TEDxGlasgow for three years in a row now – it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase Glasgow’s inspiring people and world-changing innovation.
