Following on from the success of last year’s event, the 2nd Annual Knowledge Mobilisation Forum is being held on 13th-14th April 2015 at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.
The more effectively we use the knowledge we produce through research and practice the better our services, processes and products will be. The Knowledge Mobilisation Forum provides a space for knowledge producers, knowledge brokers and knowledge users to come together to learn from each other, sharing good (and bad) practice about improving what we do and help maximise the impact of all types of knowledge in practice.
Who should attend?
If you're a teacher, healthcare practitioner, energy supplier, lecturer, director, funder or policy-maker - or anything else - you are welcome. We are looking for people who are passionate about finding better ways of mobilising, exchanging, utilising or transferring knowledge, evidence, research or ideas in any sector. You might be working in a knowledge brokering role, researching evidence into practice or perhaps you're a practitioner of any kind who wants to find ways of identifying and delivering best practice. Most importantly, you're not interested in more talk. You want to make a difference by working with colleagues from different sectors.
