Knowledge Transfer Workshop February 2019

Knowledge Transfer Workshop February 2019

Want your research to change the cancer landscape? Want to influence decision makers and attract further funding? Want to reach out to patients affected by your work?

Achieving these impacts requires a plan for delivering the right information, to the right people, at the right time, and in a format that they can use.

This one-day intensive workshop offers practical tools to help you embed a plan for impact across all stages of your research, using a knowledge transfer framework approach.

Influence and engage with peers, policy-makers, consumers, funding bodies and others.

Participants will be equipped with:

  • Practical knowledge transfer frameworks that can be applied to individual research projects
  • Understanding and skills to support the development of effective relationships with research end-users and decision-makers
  • Skills and strategies for effectively communicating research to a range of audiences and end-users

The day will cover:

  • Introduction, context, participants’ purposes and needs for impact planning
  • Knowledge transfer theory and evidence – overview
  • Knowledge transfer planning frameworks and strategies for research impact
  • Communicating research
  • Dissemination planning
