Briefing on RELU Programme outcomes

Innogen’s Catherine Lyall briefs on the RELU programme’s knowledge exchange and interdisciplinary outcomes.


Building on her extensive interdisciplinary and knowledge exchange experience, Catherine Lyall was recently invited to give an independent view of the outcomes from the Rural Economy and Land Use (RELU) Programme. Meeting with the Chief Executives of three of the UK’s research councils, as well as the RELU directorate and other senior academics, the meeting discussed the impact of RELU’s work and looked at the critical boundaries still to overcome for future of interdisciplinary work, including – developing career trajectories for interdisciplinary-minded social and natural scientists, embedding knowledge exchange activities and stakeholder engagement in future research programmes, and incentivising and internalising interdisciplinary innovations.
