Kirsty Ross

Public engagement professional


I am a senior public engagement professional (PEP) with a background in academic STEM research & a strong track record for knowledge exchange working across 3 research-intensive universities in Scotland. I transitioned to a full-time PEP role in 2015. Ever since, I have supported implementational, operational & strategic goals in knowledge exchange (KE) to bring in £172,500 in KE income.By investing in my relationships with partners, I've built considerable trust that has allowed me to deepen & strengthen our partnerships. This is critical to my role enabling postgraduate researchers to undertake KE internships in sectors as diverse as venture capital, clinical trial management, policy engagement, & industrial research in locations worldwide. Strong partnerships can grow from a single conversation. The plethora of relationships I have & multiple innovative engagement platforms I've developed enable those I work with to explore and extend their own PER/KE practice.
