The Research Councils UK Energy Programme is informed by a range of different sources. We are involved in ongoing dialogue with the research community, through our visits to universities, energy-related businesses and other stakeholders.
We also take account of emerging priorities for the Programme by consultation through the following routes:
Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)
Advice that helps us to define the Programme’s approach to supporting research and training, representatives are drawn from the providers and users of research
Energy senior research fellows
Our ambassadors for UK energy research
Workshops: We hold workshops to identify research and training challenges and priorities, scope specific activities, and consult and engage with a wide range of stakeholders.
