KT

Knowledge Translation (KT)

"A dynamic and iterative process that includes synthesis, dissemination, exchange and ethically sound application of knowledge to improve the health of Canadians, provide more effective health services and products and strengthen the health care system." (CIHR)

Integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT)

"The central premise of iKT is that involving knowledge users as equal partners alongside researchers will lead to research that is more relevant to, and more likely to be useful to, the knowledge users." (CIHR)

 

KMb

Knowledge Mobilization (KMb)

"Knowledge mobilization [includes] the wide range of activities relating to the production and use of research results, including knowledge synthesis, dissemination, transfer, exchange, and co-creation or co-production by researchers and knowledge users." (SSHRC)

KE

Knowledge Exchange (KE)

"Knowledge engagement...includes work in community-engaged scholarship, knowledge translation, knowledge mobilization, and experiential learning, among others...Knowledge engagement is a dynamic and reciprocal process in which multiple stakeholders come together to address mutually identified problems. The purpose of this deliberate engagement is for the co-creation, synthesis, and application of knowledge and evidence to benefit the community at large." (UCalgary)
