Title
Training in knowledge exchange for impact
Description
Research findings about best practice in knowledge exchange arising from this project are being used as the basis for the Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) partnership’s Knowledge Exchange Guidelines and will be integrated into the RCUK Impact Toolkit. The guidelines will inform the design of all future LWEC investments and activities. Based on these findings, the team helped develop individual knowledge exchange strategies for NERC’s Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services & Sustainability programme and the Scottish Goverment’s Centre of Expertise on Water, and has been asked to develop knowledge exchange guidelines with EU’s Biodiversa programme. Now though a national, not-for-profit training programme, this research will have even greater influence on knowledge exchange practices in the UK. Since launching in February 2013, bookings have been taken from the Universities of Nottingham, Leeds and Aberdeen, DEFRA and a number of Government agencies via LWEC, and Scottish Government has booked training with all their Main Research Providers.
