Early Career Researchers Day on Knowledge Exchange
Calling all early career researchers working on ageing and related programmes
This workshop will explore how researchers
can make their findings more appropriate and useful to different
audiences and stakeholders.
Carrying out ageing research to ensure benefits from research often
involves a diverse range of stakeholders - including funders,
older people, industry, community and voluntary organisations,
policy makers and the media.
How can researchers help to influence the delivery of services,
enhance practice, influence policy, inform new product development?
Key issues covered on the day include:
- good practice in knowledge exchange activities with key stakeholder groups and the dilemmas it raises
- how to tailor research findings to different audiences
- hearing about issues from a range of different perspectives to help make sure that research can be of benefit
- how have researchers been successful in influencing delivery of services and affecting practice
This event is particularly aimed at early stage researchers working on ageing and related programmes.
The event is being jointly hosted and organised by the New Dynamics of Ageing programme and KT-EQUAL.
