Knowledge exchange explained

What is Knowledge Exchange?

Knowledge Exchange (KE) is a process involving academics, an external organisation(s) and/or the public. The process encourages the sharing of ideas, data, experience and expertise which is mutually beneficial to all parties involved. 

For example, a construction firm may draw upon an academic's expertise to develop a new building material, whilst the academic can use this engagement to support their research and teaching. 

How can I benefit from Knowledge Exchange?

Anyone can benefit from KE. Whether you're a charity, a public sector organisation, a start-up or a multi-national, knowledge exchange can help you engage with research. 

We have a number of knowledge exchange programmes. Find out more about each programme and how you might be able to benefit:
