2018 Online KT Conference

Our 2018 theme is “Engaging Ways to Engage Stakeholders.” Presenters will emphasize the importance of incorporating stakeholder participation into project planning and implementation. Stakeholder engagement throughout research and development processes generally aims to increase topic and product relevance; improve procedures, subject recruitment in particular; and inform how findings are interpreted, embedded in dissemination and technology products and applied in practice and policy (Bowen et al., 2017; Cottrell et al., 2014). As conference presenters will discuss, a systematic outreach to stakeholders is essential to achieving these targeted, measurable and sustained impacts to research and development activities.

Registration coming soon! Registration will be limited to 250 participants. There is no fee to participate but all must register by close of business Friday, November 2, 2018.
