Deliberate planning is key to building a successful KTT plan. The plan should be flexible so it can evolve as the research progress evolves. The plan should also emphasize collaboration, partnership and networks. It should embrace all potential audiences and approaches of sharing knowledge. Involvement of the end user during the various research stages and the KTT process is important; the earlier the better.
Successful KTT plans also require dedicated resources. A knowledge
broker (like OMAFRA staff) can help you share knowledge among researchers
and users. In the most successful KTT plans, the culture around
the research and its users is open, trusting, positive and sharing.
There is opportunity for effective knowledge exchange between research
users and researchers. Learn
