Title: A Report Detailing the Development of a University-Based Knowledge Mobilization Unit that Enhances Research Outreach and Engagement
Author: Phipps, David J.
Abstract: This field note presents reflections from the perspective of a knowledge mobilization
(KMb) practitioner after five years of developing and delivering KMb services in a
university-based environment. This field note is a “how-to” based on experience in the
field of KMb practice and places that experience in the context of academic literature.
The article concludes that KMb is not a single event or process but a system, a suite of
services working together to support the multidirectional connection of researchers
with decision-makers. The six KMb services comprising the KMb system are informed
by four broad KMb methods: producer push, user pull, knowledge exchange, and coproduction. Examples of each service are provided along with key observations that allow others interested in developing institutional KMb support services to implement these services in their own context. The field note concludes with clear recommendations for individuals and organizations interested in developing their own system of KMb services.
