Being a Knowledge Broker

We have been asked many questions about knowledge brokers...

  • What are they?

  • What sort of person makes a

    good knowledge broker?

  • What will they have to do?

  • How do they do it?

These are short questions, but the answers are often greeted with disappointment as they seem to slide in every direction, avoiding the concise, neat responses that are being sought.

This resource attempt to demystify the world of a knowledge broker, drawing on published literature and the experiences of approximately 30 knowledge brokers in the the NIHR CLAHRC that covered Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire between 2008 and 2013.
