What is a Knowledge and Adoption Plan?

A Knowledge & Adoption plan will increase the uptake and impact of your research. This toolkit will help you complete your K&A plan and includes resources to conduct your K&A activities.

Developing a K&A plan early in the project helps you and us to manage knowledge uptake throughout the implementation of your project and once your project is completed (its legacy).

A K&A plan should answer:

  1. Who is involved in, affected by or interested in your project?
  2. How are they to be informed and/or engaged?
  3. When will the activities occur?
  4. How will you measure the effectiveness of your planned activities (monitoring and evaluation)?
  5. How will your project legacy continue?

A K&A plan should aim to be more than just a communication plan.
