Knowledge mobilization (KMb) is a term used to define the connection between academic research or creative works and organizations, people, and government to improve programming and inform policy change. It is a process of relationship building and can be initiated either by the researcher or the agency for whom the research will make a difference. Traditionally, researchers have produced valuable knowledge and creative works that have been narrowly shared among other academics in similar disciplines, either through peer-reviewed journals or at conferences specific to an academic area of study. Translating that knowledge into a format that is more accessible to a range of sectors is critical to informing policy change and advancing social innovation through engaged scholarship. Knowledge mobilization is a process and research impact beyond the academy is the desired outcome.
