SEDA Annual Review 2014

The SEDA annual review is now available to download.

What a year: exceptionally busy, lots of events, publications, research and funding applications.

At the core of SEDA are the drivers of fostering a community of likeminded people, promoting research and innovation, influencing policy, informing the public and managing our affairs efficiently. This year we have shifted the focus to reaching out to a wider range of people and interests. We have started this with a lively events series including green drinks events, research conference, Show & Tell and Pedalhaus tour.

The magazine goes from strength to strength, edited around a key issue it forms an intellectual backdrop and loose theme for events such as the green drinks and visits. The research conference in April brought academics and practitioners together to present new ideas and research. This conference has formed the basis of a ‘soapbox’ section of the website with videos of all of the presentations now live.

Building links to other organisations continues to be a vital task, it has opened up our  expertise, new opportunities and gained important visibility. These links have fostered the exciting SEDA Academy project. This will be established in partnership with LoveMilton in Glasgow and aims to be a template for projects in the future.

Membership has risen substantially this year, through the concerted efforts of streamlining the administration and the numerous well publicised events. We will aim to continue this trend next year.
