The basis for the Saami Culture Archive's Skolt Saami Memory Bank project is the on-going work by the principal investigator Ph. D. Marko Jouste. He has worked as the main developer in FIRI 2014 project Developing the Research Services of the Saami Culture Archive of the University of Oulu (2014–2016), funded by the Academia of Finland. His current postdoctoral research project is dealing with historical turning points of multilayered music tradition among the Skolt Saami in Finland (1.9.2015–30.8.2018). The project’s Principal investigator’s present research on the historical music culture of the Skolt Saami is based on a vast collection of archive material, gathered from the Skolt Saami during the 20th century.

To utilise the results in the Skolt Saami community, Jouste has started co-operative work with Sámi Parliament of Finland planning a series of Skolt Saami music workshops. Jouste has also been lecturing in The Skolt Sámi Language and Culture programme and Čuojat Juoigga Livđuu Leuʹdde! - Sámi Music Adult Education Project (ESR) organised by The Sámi Education Institute.

The impact of Saami cultural studies and ethnomusicological research on culture revitalisation can also be observed in the case of Inari Saami livđe. Marko Jouste's doctoral thesis Tullâčalmaaš kirdâččij The One Who Flew with the Fire-eyes – Aanaar Saami Music Culture as Interaction of the Local Tradition and Neighboring Cultures in the Beginning of the 20th Century was published in 2011, and since then the already active Inari Saami teachers and culture workers have included the Inari Saami livđe tradition as a part of their work in language nests, schools and also in materials used at school.
