Resources

Welcome to our resources repository! The following tools are intended to help you with your knowledge mobilization activities!

Knowledge mobilization is about getting the “right information” to the “right people” in the “right format” at the “right time”.

It consists of activities and outputs that build awareness, disseminate findings, and enable use of research. The goal is to maximize the impact of research and communicate these impacts as widely as possible.  The term knowledge mobilization can be used interchangeably with other terms such as knowledge exchange, knowledge translation, implementation science, and K*.

This page provides tools for planning, learning about efforts within academic, not-for-profit, corporate and government environments, and fine-tuning your knowledge mobilization skills.
