Fifth D&I Interest Group Meeting

As Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Interest Group, we aim to dig deeper into the types of activities that funders carry out in this area and the factors that influence their success. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the preliminary results of the Research on Research project, Implementation2Impact, carried out by Wendy Reijmerink and colleagues from ZonMw looking at the Participatory Knowledge Infrastructures (PKI’s).

If you are interested in joining us on 29 June 2022 from 14:00-15:30 BST please contact us.

Virtual14.00pm—15.30pm

Description

One of the 6 categories of activities that funders carry out to promote Dissemination and Implementation is Building Capacity. The D&I survey that we carried out in 2019 showed that 68% of funder respondents engage in Building Capacity which we defined as: investing in people and structures that enable/lay the groundwork for release of findings, dissemination, knowledge exchange/partnering, and/or implementation of research evidence. See: Health funders’ dissemination and implementation practices: results from a survey of the Ensuring Value in Research (EViR) Funders’ Forum

As D&I Interest Group we aim to dig deeper into the types of activities that funders carry out in this area and the factors that influence their success.

Wendy Reijmerink and colleagues from ZonMw, the Netherlands, are carrying out a Research on Research project Implementation2Impact looking at the Participatory Knowledge Infrastructures (PKI’s)*  that ZonMw funds. The project focusses on stimulating factors for successful PKI’s and the role that the funder plays in facilitating and stimulating them.

We are pleased to invite you to join us in an online, interactive consultation session on June 29th 14-15.30 BST with Wendy Reijmerink. She will present preliminary results of our study and reflect on them with participants. Three questions will be addressed:

  1. What participative knowledge infrastructures do you fund and why?
  2. What would you recommend to those who want to set up a participative knowledge infrastructure (e.g. engaging with the people who are likely to use the research before the design stage)?
  3. What can / should the role of a funding agency be in facilitating and stimulating sustainable participative knowledge infrastructures (e.g. provide implementation coaches)?

Object of the meeting is to determine if the Implementation2Impact results resonate with other funders’ experiences and to facilitate learning about Building Capacity between funders.

If you are interested in joining us on 29 June 2022 from 14:00-15:30 BST please contact us.

 

*Definition participatory knowledge infrastructure (PKI): Sustainable, not optional collaborations between researchers and stakeholders in policy, practice and/or education that are embedded in a broader ecosystem (such as knowledge platforms, learning networks, communities of practice, academic collaborative centers, consortia and living labs)
