LARIA - Local Area Research + Intelligence Association



Welcome to the LARIA in Scotland group. If you are already a LARIA member and wish to join the Scotland group, please visit our K-Hub site Analysis, Intelligence and Research (AIR) Scotland.

LARIA in Scotland was established in 1993 to develop and deliver a programme of activities which promote the further development and understanding of local government R&I in Scotland and to represent the interests of LARIA’s Scottish members. It aims to:

  1. Maintain and develop a network of practitioners throughout Scotland
  2. Share knowledge and expertise among practitioners
  3. Promote good practice in Research &Intelligence activity
  4. Raise the profile of information research throughout Scotland
  5. Establish links with appropriate organisations
  6. Promote the use of all forms of technology that will support these objectives
  7. Organise the Scottish conference and seminars and workshops appropriate to these objectives

LARIA in Scotland, chaired by Erin Murray and Nick Cassidy, regularly hosts Listens events (LARIA in Scotland Training, Events + Networks Sessions). A group, listed below, help to organise these events which occur 1 or 2 times a year.

All local LARIA groups rely on the goodwill of members to arrange free venues, come up with ideas for speakers and to provide articles for this website. We hope you are able to become an active member of the group. If you would like to be involved, check out how you can help support a local group.
