  • Knowledge Exchange for Sustainability: 7 Principles

    1. 1. KE for Sustainability: Introducing the 7 principles
    2. 2. LWEC KE guidelines LWEC/NERC process  Best practice workshop in July  Draft guidelines Sustainable Learning RELU/LWEC project  Research agenda  Understanding KE mechanisms  Build capacity for future KE in peatlands
    3. 3.  UK scope, upland/catchment management cases Interviews: 32 PI/PM/stakeholders (1-2 hrs) Project: 6 RELU, 4 RCUK, 5 NGO/business Key collaborators:  Expert group (many here)  LWEC & RELU directorates
    4. 4. 7 Principles of knowledge exchangeDraft prepared by: John Holmes, Sustainable Learning project with initial feedback from various people
    5. 5. 7 Principles of knowledge exchangeStructure: Broad principles Guidelines under each principle Methods & tips to implement each principle (hotlinks) Case studies of principles/methods with interview quotes
    6. 6. Principle 1: DESIGN FOR KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE Knowledge exchange needs to be designed and effectively integrated into research programmes from the outset to ensure the approach is adequately tailored to programme goals, contextand the needs of research participants and users. Design flexibility into programmes to ensure that they can be responsive to the changing needs and priorities of research users.
    7. 7. Principle 2: ENSURE SYSTEMATIC REPRESENTATION OF RESEARCH USER NEEDS/PRIORITIES It is important to ensure the needs and priorities oflikely research users are represented systematically in programme design and implementation, to enhance the legitimacy and impact of research.
    8. 8. Principle 3: MAKE SURE KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE IS A TWO-WAY PROCESSA two-way process of collaboration between all those involved can establish a shared purpose, engender trust, facilitate learning and ensure continued involvement in the research process.
    9. 9. Principle 4: CREATE A SAFE SPACE IN WHICH PROGRAMME PARTICIPANTS CAN SHARE OPINIONS AND EXISTING KNOWLEDGE, AND GENERATE NEW KNOWLEDGE TOGETHERThe knowledge exchange process needs toenable those involved to effectively listen to each other, share knowledge and skills, explore new ideas and to learn, adapt and apply the knowledge they gain.
    10. 10. Principle 5: DELIVER IMPACT For a knowledge exchange process to be perceivedas effective, it needs to deliver tangible and desirableoutcomes for as many of those involved as possible. Design the process to achieve something tangible, include stakeholders in deciding what should beachieved and make sure the process delivers. Quickwins early on that do not compromise research rigour will gain respect from participants, and help achieve more in the long term.
    11. 11. Principle 6: SUSTAIN ENGAGEMENT BY DEVELOPING A KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE CULTURE Ensure that a culture is promoted, where stakeholders are valued, two-way knowledge exchange is promoted, and participants work to ashared purpose, to promote sustained engagement and impact.
    12. 12. Principle 7: REFLECT AND EVALUATE Ensure knowledge exchange is monitored & evaluated, so individuals & programmes canreflect on & learn from their own and each other’s experience, to improve their practice.
