*this event is being co-organised by the Young Academy of Scotland, and YAS member Professor Wenxuan Hou (University of Edinburgh Business School) is a member of the organising committee.
The Shanghai Institute of International Finance Center (SIIFC) at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, the Review of Finance and the University of Edinburgh Business School are organizing the Shanghai Green Finance Conference in 2017. The objective is to present top quality theoretical and empirical academic research on green finance. There is no registration fee for speakers. The conference also includes a forum which brings together key policy makers and top professionals.
Earlier this month, I met Prof Graham Caie, one of the vice-presidents of the RSE. His particular remit is the Arts & Humanities, and I was meeting him as the co-chair who happens to have an A&H background. It was a very friendly and productive meeting, and I wonder if it would be worth arranging similar with the other vice presidents.
Graham is keen to encourage collaboration between RSE and YAS in the arts & humanities.
On the evening of 26 April 2013, the RSE is hosting a reception and talk organised by the John Adams Society (JAS), which is the UK alumni association of individuals who have participated in the United State’s Government’s International Visitor Programmes – programmes which have been running for 70+ years.
The organiser, Graeme Herbert is the Scottish representative on the JAS Board, as well as being the RSE Deputy Chief Executive and also the Secretary to the Board of Trustees of the charitable body which oversees the Young Academy of Scotland. He would like to extend an invitation to attend this event to members of the Young Academy.
The key areas of inquiry are • Identifying the benefits and how they may be spread • Understanding the obstacles and risks that may limit digital participation • Identifying and addressing any disadvantages.

The red light comes on and you’re live on air to millions of listeners. That’s the experience replicated in this immersive three-day media course hosted by the Beltane Network. The radio show might be just a simulation but for that added touch of reality, you’re installed in one of the state of the art studios at the BBC’s Pacific Quay Glasgow headquarters.
Also on the workshop, you explore the newsgathering process, producing video and radio reports for the evening news. There will be nowhere to hide as you work in groups filming, scripting and editing to tight deadlines. Last but certainly not least, you’ll learn what makes a great media story.
This course is open to academic and research staff and PhD students working on any subject. The fee includes lunch and refreshments at breaks and is a substantial discount on the actual cost per heard (£400).
Dr Hammond gained his PhD from the University of Birmingham in 1999 where he worked on the development of a cryogenic torsion balance used to place new short-range limits on putative forces coupling spin and gravity.
