Venue: Scottish Natural Heritage Conference Centre, Battleby, Redgordon, Perth PH1 3EW

Target Audience: Staff from CAMERAS partner organisations working in a scientific or analytical area or those who have an active interest in this work

The third annual CAMERAS conference is being hosted by Scottish Natural Heritage and the theme this year is ‘Maximising our Collective Impact’:

How do we maximise the impact of our evidence and analysis? What are the benefits of collaborative working? What can we learn from real world experience? How can creativity increase our impact? In a world of tighter budgets how can we make best use of our collective resource?

The conference aims to bring together staff from across the partnership to explore these questions and others.

Through a combination of presentations, interactive sessions, workshops, exhibitions and a knowledge café, delegates will have the opportunity to learn more about the scientific activity of CAMERAS partners, explore areas for collaboration and help shape future CAMERAS activity by sharing their knowledge and experience.

The speakers this year include Sir Peter Housden, Permanent Secretary of the Scottish Government, who will share his vision for public services in Scotland and discuss the important role that science has to play and Professor Iain Gordon, Chief Executive of The James Hutton Institute, who will touch upon on his experience of scientific collaboration.
