Skills in Action

Role: Principal Investigator
Timeline: March 2014 – December 2015

SKILLS IN ACTION (SiA) was a collaborative events programme that examined some of the challenges facing early career arts and humanities researchers. In particular, SiA explored the concept of Knowledge Exchange through a series of discussions and interactive workshop sessions.

Knowledge Exchange (KE) is a bi-directional process between academia and external groups, i.e. communities, businesses, or organisations, that enables the flow of information and knowledge between the two (or more) groups. The importance of KE, along with public engagement and the ability to demonstrate impact of publicly funded research, is of increasing importance, particularly within the current funding landscape of Arts and Humanities.

Skills in Action was a multi-institution programme, led by Edinburgh College of Art and supported by our partners, Creative Edinburgh, New Media Scotland, and Creative Services Scotland.
