You cannot "see" any events or their calender unless you are a member (must be secret stuff they get up to!) and trying to use their search it doesn't show anything for event, calender, scotland, edinburgh (so obviously not a full text search or again doesn't show 'secret stuff')

They appear to have plenty of 'local' connections via their Steering Committee
If anyone has any connection with them please let me know.
Like a lot of goverment related sites on the web they have no blog and very much a closed shop (hint!)

I have a suggestion. After the event write to each and ask them for a copy of their report on the junket, sorry trip.
Certainly one would expect the good public servants among them - a majority as far as one can see - to be making comprehensive reports and recommendations for action on their findings, so you should have no trouble there.
Even if they don't blog, you can broadcast their findings and share them with the wider world.

Will leave this anonymous as am based in the same area, and find that criticism/feedback/democracy etc is not encouraged. Unfortunately these people seem to have found the crock of European funded gold-they are on a border which has had problems in the past-still does to an extent-and have found that they can do as they like-the EU funders will swallow any story as long as it sounds good for them, and that they are dealing with their own sort. The crock of gold for them means a crock of sh*t for any creative people and businesses in the area, apart from a few trusties that they'll back to the hilt.
