  • UK Knowledge Mobilization Forum - Making Connections Matter

    3-4 February, Nesta, Plough Lane, London

Across industries and sectors we share the ambition that more useful knowledge is generated and translated into practice, to increase the impact of research and improve the way we work. Knowledge mobilisation is often about working 'in the middle', at the interface between research and practice. It brings together different worlds with different goals and different functions.
