UPDATE: please see below for event report.
Looking at social science is a relatively novel undertaking for SCRR, which to date has concentrated more on the biological, agricultural and environmental aspects.
The aim of this event was to encourage social scientists (broadly interpreted) working on topics in a rural context to come together to exchange information and insights, and to help SCRR develop a more fully cross-disciplinary approach to ‘rural research’.
The meeting had a number of focus points but was also planned to encourage researchers to network: researchers who were not presenting were invited to display posters giving information about their projects. It was supported by SCRR and by the ESRC Genomics Policy and Research Forum at the University of Edinburgh.
Venue: Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street, Perth, PH1 5HZ
