Qualities of Knowledge Brokers: Reflections from Practice
Phipps, David; Morton, Sarah
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v9 n2 p255-265 May 2013
Employing knowledge brokers is one way that universities and research centres have responded to the increasing emphasis on the wider usefulness and uptake of research beyond the academy. While there is an increase in the numbers of such professionals, there has been little focus on their roles, skills and development. In this paper, two knowledge exchange directors from Canada and the United Kingdom reflect on their combined experiences of being, developing and employing knowledge brokers in a range of roles.
