The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science Health Pathway is holding this Workshop on the 11th and 12th of May 2015 at the University of Edinburgh. This Workshop will be run by Dr Ruth Jepson from the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy, for PhD and doctorate students. As it received excellent student feedback last year, Ruth has agreed to run this Workshop once again this year. This two day Workshop is also a great opportunity for students to network, meet with other PhD students like themselves in a national context and get some peer support. Travel is reimbursed for students outside of Edinburgh. A short video from last year’s training can be viewed at the following link: http://www.socsciscotland.ac.uk/events/advanced_training

CECHR is organising a workshop to take place on Thursday 24th April called ‘Social Dimensions of Environmental Change’ which has the aim of facilitating research collaborations across the University under the broad theme of ‘environmental and social sustainability’.
Responding to global environmental change requires research and input from the social sciences in addition to the natural sciences, ranging from education, to social work, politics, anthropology, economics, geography, law and many more. Social issues relating to environmental change are diverse, and include, for example, issues relating to policy, politics and participation, legislation and regulation, reforming institutions, socio-economic structures, social justice and inequality, personal and societal values, beliefs and worldviews. The University of Dundee, and especially with its new remit for transformation, is well placed to provide research expertise to inform these issues and to generate significant research impact. However, much of this expertise is located widely across the University. This event therefore aims to provide opportunities for those with diverse expertise in understanding human social systems to network and explore collaboration in relation to environmental and social sustainability. The facilitated workshop will also include identification of potential joint research projects. The workshop will primarily involve participation and facilitated discussion.
