- Support Scotland’s sight of international developments in research and innovation and opportunities for working with international partners.
Support for Connected Scotland
We are proud to be a member of the Connected Scotland group and to support its shared ambition and connected approach to supporting the development of international opportunities for Scotland’s higher education sector. The RSE supports this connected approach through its staff involvement in the Connected Scotland Management group and its activities; and by sharing specific initiatives with Connected Scotland partners arising from RSE links with leading overseas National Academies and related bodies. RSE Fellows also support Connected Scotland activities where their knowledge and experience bring added benefit.
