We’re delighted that one of the studies we are a partner in - the GoEast Study - was recognised in the Game Changer Awards which were set up to celebrate the contributions that Scotland’s colleges and higher education institutions are making to the 2014 Commonwealth Games and its legacy.

The gold medal award recognises the impact of research relevant to the Glasgow 2014 Games, its legacy goals and/or to the enhancement of sport or understanding of the Commonwealth in Scotland. 

The GoEast study, running from 2012 to 2017 maps how the physical environment, public services, amenities and shops change in the East End area from the pre-to post-Games periods. By combining survey data from residents and school pupils with objective information, the study will assess to what extent economic, physical activity and sustainability objectives are achieved, valued by East End residents, with impacts on their quality of life and health and wellbeing. The GoEast study is part of a broader programme of research known as GoWell which investigates the impacts of investment in housing and neighbourhood regeneration in Glasgow.
