This application has been approved by OSCR, and the Scottish Society for Northern Studies (SCIO) was incorporated on 9th May, 2017 with the charity number SC047387. The trustees will be applying to wind up the previous organisation and fulfil related administrative requirements. The aims and activities of the Society will remain unchanged and members will be kept informed.
