News Item 2022

Our Chair, Professor Colin Galbraith, has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE), Scotland’s National Academy, has today announced its 2022 intake of Fellows. Included in the intake of 80 new Fellows from across the sciences, arts, education, business, and public life, is JNCC’s Chair, Professor Colin Galbraith.

On hearing of his appointment, Colin said:

"I am honoured and delighted to have been elected as an RSE Fellow alongside so many talented people.  

I look forward to becoming involved in the work of the RSE, especially at this time of the twin global emergencies of climate change and of nature loss. Using science to underpin action to tackle these issues is key, as is providing clear advice and communication on the options for the future.”  

Colin will be joining the RSE’s current Fellowship of around 1,700 Fellows, who are recognised as being some of the greatest thinkers, researchers and practitioners working in or with Scotland.

Congratulations Colin!
