KT Connects – The ‘17 year’ Gap: Its Origin, Evolution, and Relevancy

April 22, 2022, 2022

Event Navigation

Speakers – Alison Hoens and Gayle Scarrow

This session will explore some key concepts of the literature related to the frequently cited ’17 year gap between research discovery and implementation’. Gayle Scarrow and Alison Hoens will highlight their learnings from the methods and messages derived from a selection of the literature and invite participants’ perspectives on the interpretation and implications of this literature.

After this webinar, the audience will be able to:
o have an understanding of how ’the 17 year gap’ was calculated
o have an understanding of literature since the publication of the ‘17 year gap’
o appreciate nuances in the literature which influence interpretation of, and implications of, literature related to ’the gap’.

KT Connects invites trainees to stick around after each webinar for a chance to explore their goals in KT with our esteemed guest speaker. This post-webinar session is exclusively for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who want to increase their understanding of how to incorporate KT into their research or who may be considering a career in KT. It is also an opportunity to connect with other trainees interested in KT.
