We’re passionate about searching for answers to the world’s most complex questions and want to share the knowledge we gain to contribute to creating a fairer, better world for all. Working collaboratively with our business, policy and community partners is at the heart of our purpose.
What is Knowledge Exchange?Knowledge exchange brings together academic staff, users of research and wider groups and communities to exchange ideas, evidence and expertise.
It is defined by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as a two-way exchange between researchers and research users, to share ideas, research evidence, experiences and skills. It refers to processes through which ideas and insights are shared, and external perspectives and experiences are brought into academia.
