ANNOUNCEMENT – New Knowledge Exchange Programmes – 2018, Round 2

Last autumn we released our second call for proposals of 2018, on the theme of “Cooperation and Interdependence”.  We are delighted to announce that we have funded new knowledge exchange programmes from this round of applications.  These programmes include experts from across the disciplinary spectrum; among them clinical practice, disability studies, education, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, politics, product design, psychology, public health, sociology, sport and exercise, and translation studies.

Each programme brings together academic researchers with a wide range of non-academic stakeholders, from marginalised groups to policy makers and practitioners.  Also integral to each project are a wide variety of non-academic partners; including third-sector and public-sector organisations, policy makers, practitioners and individual stakeholders.

Further details on each programme will be available shortly on our website.  In the meantime, you can click on each link below for a brief taster of what to expect!

The Scottish Universities Insight Institute supports programmes of knowledge exchange which address and provide insight on substantial issues that face Scotland and the wider world. Our programmes break down disciplinary and organisational barriers in bringing together academics from different backgrounds, policymakers and practitioners. We mobilise existing knowledge in fresh ways through sustained and collaborative focus on a shared issue and aim to support decision makers in all sectors of society in being better informed. Our partner universities are: Dundee, Edinburgh, Heriot Watt, St Andrews, Stirling, Strathclyde, and Associate Member Glasgow School of Art.
