Knowledge brokers to connect research and practice

Abstract: Ensuring that research is translated into practical outcomes, and in turn ensuring that research priorities and activities are informed by practitioner experience, is a recognised priority in sectors such as medicine and natural resource management.

A way of achieving this is through the use of “knowledge brokers”. In a review of some of the literature on knowledge brokering, Morgan Meyer defines knowledge brokers as “people or organizations that move knowledge around and create connections between researchers and their various audiences”. Knowledge brokers have been used in fields such as health, environmental management, and international development.
