Venue: Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling.

The Scottish Universities Insight Institute (SUII) is a joint venture between eight of Scotland's research intensive universities. It supports multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional teams of researchers, to come together with policy-makers, practitioners and end users, along with overseas experts, to share knowledge and ideas to address the challenges and opportunities faced by Scotland and the wider world.

This exhibition, which is a SUII first, provides a glimpse into our 2014 themed knowledge mobilisation programme which sought to develop a better understanding of differing components of wellbeing in Scotland. The exhibition was produced for the Scottish Parliament in March, as the Scottish Government are currently considering the value of wellbeing indicators and their possible inclusion as additional outcome measures which help track and measure the Government’s performance. Two of the six wellbeing projects were undertaken by University of Stirling researchers:

‘Economics of Wellbeing’ (David Bell, Christopher Boyce & Liam Delaney)

‘Home Not Housing’ (Douglas Robertson, Beverley Searle & Deborah Peel – both Dundee University).
