The SRS Academic Network was established in 2014 to be an interdisciplinary community of research and teaching staff at the University of Edinburgh interested in social responsibility and sustainability themes. PhD students are welcome to join as well as academic staff.
For us, treating the University as a Living Lab means using our own academic and student research capabilities to solve social responsibility and sustainability issues relating to our infrastructure and practices.
Public engagement involves higher education institutions and their staff and students connecting and sharing their work with the public. It generates mutual benefit through the sharing of knowledge, expertise and skills.
