Labs & Incubators
Within Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, we work closely together. We have developed a practice of peer learning and peer review through regular working sessions/internal workshops to share and develop research ideas and to refine research findings in a creative and nurturing environment. At the same time, our publication strategies ensure that individual researchers are recognised for their own contribution and establish their individual "voice" in scholary and policy debates.
We made a commitment that we would meet every Monday, even if it ended up being just five or six of us... Vincent envisioned a workshop where people have multiple skills at different levels- so young people are learning how to work with more senior people, but working together, not in a hierarchy" Prof Elinor Ostrom, Nobel Laurate (Economics)
When a research idea is in an initial phase, interested Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance members gather and we thus support the lead researcher in the full development of that idea, as well as explore whether other research ideas may be connected or in other ways benefit from discussions within the Incubator.
When a research project is fully-fledged and has received external funding, we provide an opportunity for the principal investigator and research team to share and discuss their preliminary research findings, as well as explore whether the team's research may benefit or link to other research being undertaken by other Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance members.
