knowledgescotland Work Shadowing Scheme

The knowledgescotland Work Shadowing Scheme, managed by the Moredun Research Institute,  aims to enhance knowledge exchange and understanding between policy makers and scientists at MLURI, Moredun Research Institute, SAC, Rowett Institute for Nutrition and Health and the Scottish Crop Research Institute.

Up to ten scientists will spend a week in late August/early September 2009 shadowing officials in the Scottish Government.
Current evidence suggests that people physically moving between organisations and communicating in person are a very effective means of conveying knowledge and building links.
