Open Call for Proposals - 2019




The Scottish Universities Insight Institute is pleased to announce its first Call for Proposals of 2019.  This is an open call for prospective Knowledge Exchange programmes.


Knowledge Exchange Programmes

The Insight Institute supports programmes that address substantial issues facing Scotland and the wider world, which have the capacity to extend knowledge and inform policy and/or practice. SUII programmes aim to stimulate in-depth knowledge exchange and mobilisation through workshops, seminars, and other activities over a period of several months. In particular we aim to encourage knowledge exchange activity that wouldn't otherwise take place, including novel partnerships to explore new developments and possibilities for improving policy and practice. 

Applications are invited from teams whose composition reflects the multi-discipline and multi-sector remit of the Institute. Programme teams should include academics and members of communities beyond academia, e.g. the public and voluntary sectors, business and industry, as well as bringing in international expertise. Ideally some non-academic partners should be involved in the development phase of a proposal to help ensure it is demand led. 

Organising teams must include members from at least two of our partner universities:
Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow School of Art, Heriot Watt, St Andrews, Strathclyde


Prospective applicants are welcome to get in touch with the Institute for advice ahead of submission, or with any particular questions they may have.
