One of the Association’s unique selling points is its involvement with international partners through the network various SALSC directors have worked hard over the years to develop. Our international partners help to reveal new approaches to common problems as well as provide opportunities for study tours and workshops, many of which supported by European funding, which can be extremely rewarding both in developing new ideas and new friends. This page will help highlight some of the key articles released from our friends abroad. For more information on our international work please visit the International Opportunities page.
