The Centre has recognized that Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) is an important part of the research process. KMb refers to the movement of research into active use with knowledge users in order to help facilitate the uptake of research findings, partnerships and impacts around practice, policy and behaviour change.
KMb focuses on “getting the right information to the right people in the right format at the right time so as to influence decision-making” (Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, 2005). At the Centre we focus on collaborative and integrative KMb, working with our local, provincial, national and international partners, from a variety of sectors, to co-create research that has true application outside of the university. There are various terms that can be used to describe KMb, including Knowledge Translation, Knowledge Brokering and Knowledge Exchange.
Our KMb resources, tools and activities are available below:
Our Research Snapshots provide a quick overview of various areas of lifespan development research. Click any of the topics below if you’d like to learn more about it!
We host free events throughout the year to help connect the community, practitioners/clinicians, policy makers, and other researchers with new information in exciting ways – visit our Speaker Series page for more information on upcoming and previous events.
