UK-SCAPE engagement billboard

Community engagement is an important activity in all the UK-SCAPE work packages. We seek to understand the needs of those using UK-SCAPE data, data products and knowledge, while enhancing collaboration in the community. Our target community is broad, spanning people working in many areas, including: environmental policy development and implementation, research, monitoring  and compliance, data management and education. The figure shows some of the key organisations and sectors with whom we seek to engage.

Our approach to engaging with people involves three pillars: co-design, co-delivery and co-development.

Co-Design: Ensuring UK-SCAPE outcomes are fit for purpose to support the science base for:

  • The research community
  • Research funders
  • Policy makers
  • Governments
  • International initiatives.

Co-Delivery: Working with partners to deliver more than we could alone:

  • Other National Capability programmes
  • Other initiatives
  • Stakeholders.

Community engagement activities

Many UK-SCAPE activities are long-term and have a proud history of community engagement beginning prior to the UK-SCAPE programme. In these pages we report those activities specifically funded by UK-SCAPE.
