Many research funders, and research grant recipients worldwide, now expect more than ever of their investigators aiming to influence policy and programme decisions in public health and health systems. Specifically, they want to see research project plans, included in grant applications, that: 1) detail precise actions to achieve these “knowledge transfer and exchange” goals; 2) lay out exactly how such impacts of the research will be evaluated. This presentation provides a potted history of thinking about these issues, since the pioneering work of Canadian Jonathan Lomas (founder of the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation) more than two decades ago. The target audience is particularly early-to-mid-career researchers in these fields.


Dr Francesco Paolucci, School of Business and Governance
