SKAPE: About Us


Join Us

We welcome new members who are working on SKAPE themes, and who are keen to support SKAPE activities. There are two types of membership:

Members are staff based at the University of Edinburgh, whose research focuses on questions of the relationship between knowledge and policy. If you are interested in applying for membership, please email the co-directors outlining how your research fits SKAPE's interests and how you would like to engage in SKAPE activities. We expect members to be active in shaping the Centre’s activities, for example through developing new ideas for collaborative projects, events, teaching and training, or dissemination activities. We also expect members to attend seminars, contribute to the website (e.g. through news items and blogs), and list relevant research projects on the website.

Associate Members are staff based at other universities or institutions, but with an active involvement in SKAPE activities, for example through collaborative research, related policy work, or co-organisation of events or teaching/training. Associate Membership is usually through invitation by the Co-Directors but if you are interested in becoming an Associate Member please email the co-directors outlining the relationship between your work and SKAPE and how you would like to engage in SKAPE activities.
