Scottish Economy

Engage week event – the Scottish economy

Last Friday we held our annual ‘Engage week’ event.

Engage @ Strathclyde‘ is the University’s flagship programme of external engagement events where delegates have the opportunity to find out more about the world leading research taking place at the University, and for industry, the public and third sector to explore how they can work with us to collaborate in a variety of ways.

At our event, the FAI Director Graeme Roy provided a short review of the current state of the Scottish economy (slides provided below), followed by a focussed series of discussions with panellists and the audience on key issues in the economy.

We were joined by panellists, Jane-Frances Kelly (Director of the David Hume Institute), Graeme Sands (Clydesdale Bank), Julia Darby (Head of Department of Economics, University of Strathclyde) .

The event also showcased some of the FAI’s research activities and plans for the year – with poster sessions covering all the Institute’s work programmes.

Below are Graeme Roy’s slides. These can be downloaded here.
