I am currently working closely with colleagues from the local authority Education Department  in Dumfries and Galloway on the da Vinci project involving 9 secondary schools. The intention is to provide personal development and support to lead teachers in enterprise creativity and ideation for future collaboration events.

I am also working with colleagues  to establish a UWS research community on the Dumfries campus. Currently there is a Collaborative and Knowledge Exchange (C.A.K.E) group which includes colleagues from across several academic disciplines.

The group meets throughout the academic year to identify collaborative themes for working papers.
