New Approaches to Knowledge Mobilisation
4-5 Jul 2018
Hyatt Regency Sydney, 161 Sussex St, Sydney

The conference provides an opportunity to hear from international and Australian experts in knowledge mobilisation, share your research and to meet with others working in this emerging field.

Keynote speakers include experts from the Sax Institute and other leading thinkers in this space – Professor Andy Bindman, from the University of California San Francisco, Professor Nicholas Mays, of the Policy Innovation Research Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and Professor Sally Redman, CEO of the Sax Institute.

Research can make an important contribution to effective decisions about policies, programs and service delivery. This conference takes a broad approach to research and recognises that research is undertaken by universities, by policy and program agencies and using co-production approaches.

The conference program will provide both structured and open opportunities for networking and building collaborations with colleagues in this field.

The conference will explore all aspects of knowledge mobilisation and will consider:

  • Approaches to building the capacity of agencies to use the best available evidence
  • Methods for co-production
  • Better methods for more rigorous and useful evaluations of policy
  • Measuring research use and impact

Who should attend: This conference will be of interest to policymakers, researchers and practitioners who are passionate about knowledge mobilisation and concerned to ensure that knowledge and evidence are the bedrock of public policy.
