Knowledge Transfer


Knowledge Transfer is defined by Massa and Testa (2009) as “the processes of transferring, disseminating and distributing knowledge in order to make it available to those who need it” (p. 130). Research begets new knowledge, that has done much to change our society and enhance health and well-being of human beings. To maximise its impact, knowledge should be transferred effectively to the wider community. The department has a long history of contributing to the community and our staff have been proactively involved in a wide range of knowledge transfer activities.
