What is knowledge mobilisation?
Knowledge mobilisation is about making information useable and accessible through working collaboratively.
What does the knowledge mobilisation team do?
The aim of the knowledge mobilisation team is to encourage researchers, commissioners and clinicians to work together to increase research-informed commissioning and commissioning-informed research
Why does knowledge mobilisation matter?
Over £8 billion is spent annually on research, but relatively little appears to inform policy or practice. Studies of what makes a difference continually find that personal contact between researchers, policymakers and practitioners is key to research uptake. Knowledge mobilisation is about creating opportunities for that personal contact, which hopefully will lead to more research-informed commissioning and commissioning-informed research.
