On the 23rd November 2022, MASTS attended the Team Saltire networking day event where recipients of the funding were invited to attend a day of talks and masterclass workshops to assist their continued professional development. MASTS was one of the research pools to be awarded funding for the SFC Saltire Emerging Researcher Scheme (SERS) European Exchange programme. The MASTS-SERS Programme provided an important opportunity to both reinvigorate existing research collaborations, as well as to facilitate the creation of new inter- and transdisciplinary collaborations between Scottish and European institutions at a critical time when evidence based environmental stewardship, policy and management is essential. MASTS funded 13 individuals from the grant, see the list and their reports here.
At the networking event, MASTS was delighted to see that three of its awardees were shortlisted for the 3 minute flash talk prizes in the “food, Bioeconomyu, Nature Resources, Agriculture and Environment” category for the talks. Well done to Magnus Janson, Emily Hague and Alexandra Pound. Watch the 3 minute videos here: Magnus, Emily and Alexandra
