Utilising our extensive policy and practitioner network, EDAS has established an Inclusive Growth Community of Practice (CoP). The CoP allows policy makers and practitioners to explore how best to deliver activities that promote this key government objective. EDAS will also be delivering related CPD training. This initiative is aligned with the Government’s Scottish Centre for Regional Inclusive Growth.


The Economic Development Association Scotland (EDAS) is the independent voice of economic development in Scotland. EDAS is the country’s foremost membership driven association for all organisations and individuals with an interest in economic development.

We aim to facilitate a substantial improvement in the effectiveness of economic development activity in Scotland by helping to raise the knowledge, skills and networks of those involved in all aspects of economic development. Our activities include networking seminars on key economic development issues; independent, collaborative policy work; CPD training courses in economic development; and larger events and conferences.

To stay informed on events and activities from the Inclusive Growth Community of Practice, please sign up to our mailing list. EDAS’s privacy policy can be viewed here.
