TR Talks: Knowledge Translation
Mar 12, 2019: Knowledge Translation
Research has, historically, been a core focus of Universities. However, the production of knowledge and its application outside academe are not synonymous. In publicly funded institutions, especially, do researchers have a social imperative to share the knowledge produced with the broader society? Is mobilizing or communicating knowledge for broader social, economic or political benefit an obligation of (publicly funded) institutions? Let’s discuss the relationship between research, translation and innovation.
