What is Knowledge Exchange?
We use the term Knowledge Exchange (or ‘KE’) to describe a range of activities that communicate the results of research. This site presents several examples of these elsewhere, including “commercialisation”, “short courses ” and “consultancy”.
What can we do for you?
At Stirling, we design our KE activities to meet the needs of those who need to use our knowledge. For example:
- Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) receive part funding and help you, the company, to increase your profitability and productivity. You will take on a recent Stirling graduate on placement and receive ongoing support from a Stirling academic. These work together to help you solve a problem or challenge of your choosing. Further information is available on our Knowledge Transfer Partnership page.
- Public engagement makes the results of research accessible to the public. This is an exciting challenge for researchers. Researchers use a variety of means to ensure that as many people as possible are told about, and inspired by, our work.
- Conferences gather together interested parties to share developments in a particular field and communicate research results. Our researchers have experience in both organising and presenting at conferences. They regularly host events with, and on behalf of, other organisations. Stirling also offers excellent conference facilities which can comfortably meet the needs of most groups.
