This course is for anyone who is new in a Knowledge Exchange role in HE/research organisation and those who are experienced in one aspect of KE and want to understand the wider context and other modes of Knowledge Exchange. Delegates may not have much experience of working with businesses and probably not much experience of the different forms of interactions that can take place between universities and businesses.
Delegates will most likely be working in higher education and public sector research. They may have some experience in specific areas of developing or managing knowledge exchange or research opportunities, but less knowledge and understanding around the breath and drivers around different aspects of Knowledge Exchange. They may be focusing on a discipline in a specific area such as technology transfer or regional development activity or KTP support.
Why should I attend this course?
There is increasing importance in supporting academic staff to create impact through knowledge exchange activities. This is emphasised with the introduction of the new Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) which intended to increase efficiency and effectiveness of how universities undertake Knowledge Exchange activities. Having an overview of the governmental drivers, academic motivations and modes of Knowledge Exchange are essential in supporting academics to increase impact and diversify income streams.
This course is focusing on introducing you to the different forms of interactions that can be undertaken in supporting academic staff to deliver their impact through Knowledge Exchange opportunities.
What will I learn from the course?
- Understanding the breadth of Knowledge Exchange activity
- Understand the needs and drivers of academic and non-academic partners
- Consider what are the academic drivers for Knowledge Exchange
- Recognise and be able to recommend the different routes of Knowledge Exchange in a given situation
- Develop new Knowledge Exchange opportunities
- An overview of planning, delivering and evaluating Knowledge Exchange projects
Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from (and speak directly with) Knowledge Exchange practitioners. There will also be ample opportunity for networking with other delegates, the course team and other contributors. Delegates will have the opportunity to solve their own Knowledge Exchange challenges with the help of the course delegates.
PLEASE NOTE: There may be a requirement for delegates to undertake some pre-course work/reading before the course begins.
