Connect for Impact

C4I - Scotland’s Innovation Hub for Knowledge Exchange, Connection and Impact

The aim of the SRUC KE Hub is to mobilise knowledge and deliver impact, translating evidence, expertise and experience into continuous innovation and uplift in the rural economy. 

The SRUC KE  Hub provides a clear strategic focus for SRUC’s knowledge exchange activities, and position SRUC as the go-to source for evidence, skills, training and innovative solutions. The hub will optimise networks and knowledge flows and drive impact which lifts the rural economy. 

The C4I Hub links SRUC’s academic and consultancy activity, champion internal collaborative working and align strategy with stakeholder needs. Using the embedded expertise and technical skills in SRUC, the hub will develop novel KE initiatives and funding sources and prepare SRUC for assessment under future Knowledge Exchange Frameworks. The hub will also lead strategic engagement and collaboration with external sources of expertise so that optimal solutions can be developed for stakeholders. 

The hub is lead by Professor Fiona Burnett.
