Academic Community

The Academic Community aims to further research in the fields of practice represented by STEP.

Through the collaboration of expert members, the group carries out research to advance the knowledge capital of STEP. The group provides a network for academics and practitioners who share a common interest in influencing cross-discipline and multi-jurisdictional knowledge, research and expertise on a global scale.

The Academic Community aims to build links between STEP, universities and industry to facilitate knowledge transfer and the application of innovative practice. This feeds into STEP’s work, supporting STEP’s mission to educate professionals and promote high professional standards within its membership.
