Twinned events on 13 February 2009 at the Augustine Church Centre, 41 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh.

The first is a Public Policy Seminar on the third sector and the economic downturn (11.30am-4pm). The seminar will take both a UK and Scottish perspective on the implications of the financial crisis and economic downturn on the third sectorÕs role in society, with academic speakers joined by respondents from the sector, and opportunities for substantial interactive discussion. Please contact Marzena.Bien@esrc.ac.uk (01793 413137) to register.

The second event is the Scottish Launch of the UK Charitable Giving and Philanthropy Research Centre (4-7pm). As part of its mission, the centre is committed both to increasing our knowledge of charitable giving and philanthropy in Scotland and to using this knowledge to promote evidence based policy and practice.
