Knowledge mobilization

Knowledge mobilization (KMb) means promoting and facilitating the use of research among knowledge users (stakeholders, decision makers, policy makers, practitioners, community members, patients, etc.) to help them make informed decisions about policies, programs, practices and behaviour.

Knowledge mobilization at uOttawa encompasses a wide range of activities, such as knowledge synthesis and dissemination, as well as co-creation by researchers and knowledge users (integrated KMb).

The interaction between researchers and knowledge users in KMb can vary in complexity and intensity, depending on the nature of the research, the findings and the needs of the knowledge users.

The following information focuses on knowledge mobilization in the social sciences, arts and humanities, and in health research (excluding commercialization).

Through our Knowledge Mobilization Strategy 2019-2021 and Research Connections Unit, uOttawa is committed to supporting research teams and research administration staff.
