Opportunity Details

Purpose

The purpose of the Mobilize Grant is to fund knowledge mobilization activities in relevant and practical settings and mediums, with the aim of improving the applicability and impact of health research in Saskatchewan.

Terminology

Knowledge Mobilization

SHRF uses the term knowledge mobilization to refer to all activities used to bring awareness to research activities and findings in a way that can be used in practice. This includes but is not limited to knowledge synthesis (ie. compiling and interpreting information from multiple sources), dissemination (ie. distributing information to others), transfer (ie. sharing skills experience and ideas), exchange (ie. consulting and collaborating learning environments), and co-creation (ie. collaborating with other stakeholders to guide the design process). Knowledge mobilization should encourage exchanges between researchers and knowledge-users.

Knowledge-user

SHRF defines knowledge-users as any individual who could receive and use new knowledge to implement improvements in health – their own health, the health of others or the health system. These individuals may represent organizations that are interested in the practical application of knowledge. A knowledge-user may be a practitioner, health system manager, policymaker, educator, decision-maker, health care administrator, community leader or an individual from a health institution, patient group, government organization, etc.

Objectives

Proposed activities must fulfill the purpose of knowledge mobilization by addressing at least one of the following objectives:

  1. Facilitate the use and integration of health research knowledge and evidence into practice and decision making.

  2. Facilitate the use of relevant knowledge (e.g., lived experiences, traditional knowledge) to inform and guide research activities.

  3. Facilitate the participation of non-academic team members in the research and knowledge sharing process.
