Completion of the Programmes and Final Reports

The 2005-2010 Programmes of Strategic Research ended on 31 March 2011.

To celebrate the achievements of the Programmes, a showcase event was held in February 2011, attended by Roseanna Cunningham, the then Minister for the Environment and Climate Change. This was also used to launch the new rural and environment investments in science for 2011-16. The event included presentations from the Scottish Government's main Research Providers (MRPs) on the research outcomes from each of the 2005-2010 Programmes.

In addition to this event, final reports have been provided by the MRPs, summarising the findings for each area of research.
