There are thousands of researchers who undertake projects involving research integration and/or implementation. But we are poorly linked and networked. Join us in building a global community using the Integration and Implementation Insights blog as the core.
The blog aims to make it easy for researchers to share concepts and methods across the boundaries of their own expertise. The focus is on useful ways to:
- identify and synthesise diverse knowledge
- understand and manage what we do not and cannot know
- engage policy makers and practitioners to implement research findings.
Blog posts aim to be easy for busy people to read quickly, with pointers to where to follow-up if the message strikes a chord. Think of them as an academic amuse bouche, designed to stimulate the appetite to find out more.
At one year old with more than 100 contributions under its belt, the blog is proud to have had contributors from 20 countries, covering research implementation, change, inter- and trans- disciplinarity, co-creation, collaboration, stakeholders, communication, modelling, unknowns and more.
The blog also covers how higher education can better prepare the next generation of researchers with integration and implementation skills. And the blog examines how to make research integration and implementation a more central part of the academic mainstream in both research and education.
The blog has a key partnership with the SESYNC theme "Building Resources for Complex, Action-Oriented Team Science".
SESYNC (the US National Science Foundation-funded National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center at the University of Maryland) has funded three pursuits (projects) for the theme "Building Resources for Complex, Action-Oriented Team Science." Professor Gabriele Bammer is the theme leader.
The pursuits are:
Pursuit members are regular contributors to the blog.
