Strathclyde University runs a programme of classes called Vertically Integrated Projects (VIPs) which encourage students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to original research and development projects. In so doing they take part in multi-disciplinary teams on cutting edge research and development projects working with undergraduate and postgraduate students from all years and staff from across the University. This exposes students to new knowledge and skills while also enabling them to help progress the SDGs. This year's projects include: Goals 1 and 8 - Enterprise VIP Goals 2, 6 and 7 - Water and Sanitation Goal 3 - Drug discovery Goal 4 - Text Lab STEM Education and Public Goal 5 - Text Lab Goal 7 - Sustainable Energy for Development Goal 9 - Rover Goal 9 - Strathclyde Analytical Institute of Law
