Topic Support Network: Sustainable Procurement

Date: 11 June 2014 13:30 - 16:00

Venue: University of Edinburgh

Background

Topic Support Networks provide an opportunity to share information, experiences and good practice across the university and college sector in Scotland. There are 8 groups focusing on a range of areas to support a holistic approach to sustainability and social responsibility in your institution. These meetings are free to attend; whether you are new to the sector or just looking to update your knowledge, everyone is welcome. These are not just one off events but a community where support and advice is always at hand. As a group we are able to identify problems and look for opportunities, delivering practical outcomes you can take back to your institution.
