Glasgow is situated along both banks of the River Clyde and is Scotland’s largest city. 

Glasgow’s economy in the 21st century includes traditional heavy engineering, advanced engineering and manufacturing, aerospace technology and development (notably the production of satellites), information and communication technology, software engineering, and renewable energy and low-carbon innovations.

The city is also a renowned education centre, led by the University of Glasgow (founded 1451). Tourism has increased in importance, and the city will notably be receiving the COP26 in 2020.
