The pivotal role of community engagement is clear in all work packages of UK-SCAPE and is summarised in the three pillars of co-design, co-delivery and co-development. These pillars encompass UKCEH’s desire to understand the needs of those using the data, data products and knowledge delivered by UK-SCAPE while enhancing collaboration in the community. The target community for UK-SCAPE is actors across the full continuum of policy-science-practice-society.
Ensuring UK-SCAPE outcomes are fit for purpose to support the science base for:
- The research community
- Research funders
- Policy makers
- International initiatives.
Working with partners to deliver more than we could alone:
- Other National Capability programmes: Hydro-JULES, ASSIST, LOCATE, UKESM
- Other initiatives e.g. UKEOF, ICOS, eLTER, Danubius
- Stakeholders e.g. Environment Agency, JNCC, Defra.
Maximising opportunities to build on UK-SCAPE science:
- Community engagement, such as the visual storytelling workshop held in 2020, to identify opportunities to build on UK-SCAPE outcomes.
