On 15th May at the Advanced Research Centre, SFC and the University of Glasgow co-hosted a celebration event ‘Ambition and Impact: International Development Research in Scotland’. The event brought together around 150 people including researchers, research professionals, governments and funding bodies to celebrate international development research in Scotland and facilitate knowledge sharing.  

The day highlighted the huge range of international development successes such as planning tools for decision making for sand supply in Vietnam, to genomic and advanced reproductive technologies to address tropical dairy cattle genetic improvement challenges, to archaeological investigations of prehistoric ‘routes and roots’ on Rarotonga and Aitutaki Cook Islands and co-producing tourism development, education and research tools with archaeological heritage asses.   

A playlist of the talks from the day are available on SFC’s YouTube channel:
