Solving real world challenges requires scientific knowledge to be effectively interpreted, translated, communicated and shared. In other words, it requires knowledge brokering. 

Knowledge brokering delivers scientific impact and innovation by connecting researchers and stakeholders, facilitating knowledge sharing, and the co-design and co-production of research to maximise outcomes. Knowledge brokering spans a diversity of roles, and many early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) engage in some form of knowledge brokering without realising. 

This symposium – Connecting the dots: knowledge brokering for impact and innovation – aims to empower EMCRs to recognise and understand how knowledge brokering can enhance the impact and innovation of their research, contexts in which they are already knowledge brokering, and the skills and practice of knowledge brokering.

Comprising four virtual 3-hour sessions over four weeks, Connecting the dots will address what knowledge brokering is, why it is important for impact and innovative science, how knowledge brokering is performed and where to go next to incorporate knowledge brokering into their scientific practice (see the for more details).

Registration is free.

Who is this for?

EMCRs, postgraduate students and STEM professionals are invited to join the symposium. The symposium is designed to assist a broad range of experience levels, from those entirely new to knowledge brokering, through to those already undertaking knowledge brokering.

Enabling participation is critical. Accessibility and caring support will be available to facilitate your attendance.

Accessibility grants

Through the Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia), the Australian Academy of Science is offering a number of mobility grants to support a diversity of EMCRs and PhD students to attend the Connecting the dots event series.

The mobility grants are designed to offset the expenses associated with attending for those participants who may not be able to attend without support and/or people from traditionally underrepresented groups.

Funds can be used to cover costs associated with attending the event, such as caring responsibilities, access to an appropriate venue and connectivity, and other support required to facilitate your attendance.

Accessibility grant applications can be made during the event registration process.
