Course: The Art of Brokering Knowledge

On 5 May 2021, the GSPI team gave a course on the the Art of Knowledge Brokering. Based on academic and grey literature as well as our practical experience, we gave a 45-min lecture on how to produce, synthesise and disseminate scientific knowledge in a way that is policy-relevant and geared towards social impact.

The lecture covers the following topics:

  1. Reconciling science and policy
  2. Knowledge brokering: ingredients and processes
  3. Boundary objects
  4. Framing and messaging
  5. Dissemination, engagement and impact amplification
  6. A tool for knowledge brokering

We are currently in the process of refining this course and hope to provide additional course offering in the near future.

Please reach out to us if you think your team or institutions would benefit from this course or an adapted version thereof.
