Many congratulations to SCCJR’s Susan McVie who has been awarded a grant from the ESRC and SFC to establish an Applied Quantitative Methods Network (AQMeN) in Scotland.  The Network will involve a programme of seminars and training events aimed at building capacity in quantitative methods across the social sciences in Scottish HEIs.  It is anticipated that AQMeN will build on existing strategic investment aimed at both encouraging and supporting postgraduate students and academics of all levels to expand their expertise and learn a range of new skills.  In her role as Network Director, Susan will be working with a number of collaborators from eight Scottish Universities, representing a wide variety of disciplines. The Network will be funded for 3 years in the first instance.
