Scottish Crucible is a highly prestigious professional and personal leadership and development programme for early career academics establishing themselves in Scotland.
Social scientist Dr Heather Morgan, who works within our Delivery of Care programme, was selected to be one of this year’s 30 Scottish Crucible participants, chosen from over 100 competitive applications. Heather is delighted to be taking part. She said: “It is really exciting to become a member of the Scottish Crucible community. In the two labs we’ve attended so far, I have had the chance to give evidence to a mock committee at the Scottish Parliament and genuine opportunities to talk about and initiate interdisciplinary collaborations with fellow 2015 Cruciblists working in a range of disciplines across a number of Scottish Institutions . We’re able to consider the ways in which our research has and can have impact and develop new networks that wouldn’t have been immediately obvious or possible in the course of our daily work, but which are really important for the future of Scottish research. The labs themselves are fast-paced and intensive – which I find very stimulating.” Heather is looking forward to participating in the final lab, which will be held at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen in June.
