Informed Scotland – July/August issue published



After a relatively slow start to July, the rest of the summer weeks were packed with announcements, initiatives, spending commitments and, of course, exam results.

One of the busiest sectors was higher education, particularly in forging new partnerships – for knowledge exchange with business, for research and new courses, at home and internationally.

The knowledge exchange items ranged from resource, a new creative hub at Heriot-Watt’s School of Textiles & Design; to wave and windpower partnerships; a new BBC R&D initiative involving six UK universities including Dundee; and a new seafood think tank at Stirling.

However, our new favourite description of knowledge transfer came from an item about Shell’s new Geoscience Exploration centre at Heriot-Watt – Shell refers to it as ‘innovation through active partnership’ – perfect!

Find out how to get your copy with all the details – new subscribers will also receive a copy of our Organisations & People Special issued last month.
