Day of Science and Career Scotland

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganiser of special symposia


Day of Science and Careers Scotland 2016 hosted the 2nd SCI Scotland Group Day of Science and Careers on 31 May 2016 with the theme Made in Scotland - Applied Research and Manufacturing. Building on the popularity of last year’s careers day held at the University of Aberdeen, this year’s event was fully booked with 64 attendees. Early career delegates (undergraduates and postgraduates) from various Scottish institutes, stretching from the University of Aberdeen to the University of the West of Scotland, were given the opportunity to network with scientists currently in the Scottish manufacturing industry and to listen to stimulating talks delivered by those who have experienced or are currently working in industry, SMEs and research institutes. The presentations offered a spectrum of career topics: from edible sausage casings, Deep Heat, the Scottish seaweed industry, to medicines of the sea, which no doubt introduced to the audience unfamiliar career opportunities and triggered new perceptions of career paths for scientists.
