SFC Review on Scottish Tertiary Education and Research

Date: July 2021

The Scottish Funding Council has published the final report of their review of Scottish Tertiary Education and Research focusing on how best to achieve a responsive, coherent, and sustainable education, skills and research provision. This publication comes at a crucial time for the Covid 19 recovery and in our journey as a nation to NetZero. We particularly note the emphasis put on collaborative research and knowledge exchange as these are topics at the heart of SULSA and the new cross-pool initiative, Research Innovation Scotland. 

Scottish Research Innovation Futures Workshop One

Date: June 2021

The first workshop under the Scottish Research Innovation Futures workshop series took place in May 2021. This workshop fell under the SULSA theme Health and Wellbeing and focused on Our Future Health in Scotland. The focus was on two key areas within the Health Tech sector: management of existing long-term conditions, and early detection of disease. The workshop featured a wide variety of speakers, flash presentations and case studies.
