SFC Saltire Emerging Researcher Showcase: Scotland and Europe Research Collaborations

Thursday 7th July 2022
11am - 4pm

This research showcase highlights the work of talented researchers, who are taking part in SGSAH’s SFC Saltire Emerging Researcher Scheme. The Scheme has seen PhD and Early Career Researchers travel between Scotland, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. We will hear directly from our SFC Saltire Emerging Researchers about their international exchange projects and their collaborations with European partner institutions.  

The panels will showcase the research collaborations which the Scheme has enabled and will offer an informative and engaging overview of the individual projects, and of the possibilities of European mobility. The SFC Saltire Emerging Researchers also highlight new international partners and networks, and will bring into focus the importance of knowledge exchange and highlight successful approaches to cross-cultural and interdisciplinary work.  

Format: 3 research seminars 

Platform: Zoom (recorded sessions)
