What is knowledge and adoption?

We use the term knowledge and adoption to describe how we manage information and knowledge throughout the lifecycle of research to improve adoption of the research outcomes. In other words, we manage knowledge for improved adoption. The lifecycle of a research program includes planning, implementation and legacy.

This means more than doing technology transfer when the research is complete, more than communicating outcomes in glossy brochures, and more than investing research dollars without determining your stakeholder needs.

Adoption

Adoption is the uptake of research outputs in the community. It is also sometimes called Uptake.
