Knowledge Transfer


In support of the knowledge transfer workstream, in December 2013 NISCHR commissioned a Knowledge Transfer Task and Finish Group to assist in identifying enablers and barriers to the progression of research knowledge translation in health and social care.

The workstream covered commercial and non-commercial research evidence and included recommendations for system change. Recommendations of the group have been considered and shared with relevant stakeholders to ensure the impact of research features seamlessly in the economic and innovation activities planned in Wales.

The document ‘Achieving Knowledge Transfer in Health and Social Care Research’ provides the background to this work.

The recommendations from the Knowledge Transfer Task and Finish group are also available.
