Dear SAGES member,

Thanks to everyone who attended the SAGES 2016 Science meeting, held over the last two days in Oban. With a packed room and packed schedule I think this meeting marked a turning point in the revitalization of SAGES. All the key ingredients for our second phase were brought to the fore:

  • Theme redesign: to speak more clearly to societal needs, and more accurately reflect our research.
  • Forum building on key environmental issues: Water, Terrestrial and Marine Carbon, Ice/Ocean interaction. Plus more to come.
  • Launch of the new SAGES Small Grants Scheme (SSGS).
  • Announcement of new SAGES PhD studentship scheme from our new Graduate School Convenor (Dr John Howe).
  • Launching of SAGES Impact and Innovation partnership with the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation.

 Full details of these, and more, will appear on the new SAGES website – check it out!

 And of course we had a fabulous range of research talks, covering the age and topic spectra  – from robots under ice sheets, to managing water to our homes, and from first year PhD student to the professor ‘counting the days’!

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to a great networking event. Please help raise our profile and extend our reach by promoting SAGES whenever you can – use our resources, display the logo
