We translate academic research.
Whether you are trying to influence decisions, guide practice or something completely different, we can help.
Academics are increasingly required to demonstrate the impact of their research, whether its towards economic growth, increasing human wellbeing or delivering environmental protection.
In practice however this is very challenging. Academics are often not rewarded for pursuing real-world impact, the needs of businesses don't align with academic pressures and an entirely different skill set is needed to engage practitioners. Similarly, end-users don't know how to deal with or seek assistance from academics, despite them having so much to offer.
This is where we come in. We specialise in facilitating collaborations between academics and practitioners. We help translate innovations and expertise into a form that's directly relevant to end users, delivering impacts and fostering mutually beneficial collaborations.
We are nimble
Whilst academics often have critical insights they are frequently unable to invest the time required to deliver practical outputs. We are able to work closely with experts to translate their knowledge into practical reports, guidelines and recommendations.
We can support you
All of our staff are academics themselves but have also worked as practitioners. Consequently, we have specialised in translating academic expertise into a breadth of formats suitable for a wide range of audiences.
We can help find funding
One of the most effective ways to deliver impact is to work with practitioners to deliver something they can use. We can help facilitate partnerships that both guarantee a useful output but also bring in funding.
