K* Concept Paper; towards better knowledge sharing and effective interfaces of research, policy and practice

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

Across sectors, geographies, and disciplines, there is a growing awareness and emphasis in knowledge sharing at the interfaces of research, policy and practice. Parallel to that is the burgeoning of the associated terminology, such as Research Communication, Knowledge Mobilization, Brokering, Translation, Exchange and Intermediation. K* was coined as an overarching concept and as a useful shorthand to describe the various aforementioned terms along with others used within and amongst the knowledge-focused community. K* also represent a framework to think to about K* functions and processes, allowing one to see how the diverse range of K* functions, processes, practitioners fits within the landscape of knowledge to optimize knowledge sharing.

The concepts and principles outlined in this K* concept paper (“Expanding our understanding of K* (KT, KE, KTT, KMb, KB, KM, etc.”) are a result of the lessons learned during the K* conference in April 2012, which were then further refined with the help of constructive comments and advice received via an extensive crowd-sourced peer review.
