What is Beltane?

550362_433612816685760_1236334800_nBeltane is an agreement by the four universities in Edinburgh to coordinate their approaches to public engagement with research. By being joined-up, the four universities can share best practice and opportunities. Having a recognisable point of contact also makes it easier for other organisations to work with Edinburgh’s universities – and to do so without seeming to favour one over the other.

The Beltane Network is not a members club. Simply by being part of a university in Edinburgh, you are part of the Network, and we would love to see you at our events!

We also do not have a list of external ‘preferred partners’: if you would like to exchange knowledge with researchers at one or more of Edinburgh’s universities, we will do our best to help, regardless of where you are from.
