Current Projects

We would like to share with you the successful QAA Scotland Enhancement Themes mini-projects in our second round of funding. These represent the breadth of activity and creativity across the institution, reflecting the dedication of staff in supporting a sense of community at local and global levels.

We encourage you to think about applying for mini-project funding if you have an idea which supports community within the institution and its environs. Our next call for funding will be advertised on the Strategic Projects page.
