Team purpose: To pursue and deliver science excellence

Team mission: To have a good time doing it!


The G2RG operates efficiently due to the relatively flat structure of academics, research scientists, technical specialists and PhD candidates working side-by-side to deliver scientific excellence. Individual development and achievement can achieve only so much for growth. So, to accelerate growth and consistently improve performance, the G2RG focuses on collaboration at all levels. We are strongly aligned with the University of Glasgow Technicians Commitment (, and actively contribute to improving diversity and equality at SUERC.
