Knowledge Exchange and Impact Coordinator
I am part of the Knowledge Exchange and Impact team in Edinburgh Research Office. My job involves developing networks of people working inside and outside the university. I help bring people together to look at how social sciences and humantities research can help businesses, third sector, and public sector organisations meet new challenges (e.g. around energy, health, productivity, sustainability, data, creative economy and cultural heritage). Our aim is to bring the right people together, at the right time, in order to make research useful.
I help external organisations link up with researchers with relevant expertise, to solve problems that matter to them.
I support researchers to connect up with other academics and with organisations outside the university, and help make sure their research is used to improve society.
