About this course

This international course focuses on new approaches for knowledge transfer, exchange and dissemination between researchers and practitioners in OSH. The course will introduce new methods and approaches on how to increase the value and use of occupational health and safety research for end users. In addition, the course will discuss how to engage practitioners in the research process to adopt research to local conditions, and make research more relevant to problems in practice. The course covers a wide variety of occupational sectors and types of OHS problems. Participants with different disciplinary and professional backgrounds will be given the opportunity to share their experiences in an interactive way. The course endeavors to integrate a mixture of researchers and professionals.

The lecturers are selected to represent the best researchers in the area of research to practice and how to utilize research to practice approaches in practice.
  • The course will introduce the concept of integrated KTE and cover a variety of practical methods to add into research practice.
  • The participants are provided with an opportunity to present their projects and exchange experiences to discuss the research to practice approach embedded in their own work, and discover new ways to engage practitioners in useful evidence based preventive solutions. The coursework and lecturers will give the participants input and feedback on how to proceed with research to practice methods and tools.

Subject background

The demand for better use of evidence based research findings is increasing. This also applies to OSH research. New methods are now available worldwide that focus on both knowledge transfer and knowledge exchange with external audiences and research users. Knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) is an approach for actively engaging practitioners/knowledge users in research, and sharing useful evidence with decision makers and practitioners. However, efforts remain to advance the engagement of knowledge users to help the dissemination and uptake of evidence based OHS findings.

This international course focuses on new approaches for knowledge transfer, exchange and dissemination between researchers and practitioners, in OSH. The course will introduce new methods and approaches on how to increase the value and use of occupational health and safety research for end users. In addition, the course will discuss how to engage practitioners in the research process to adopt research to local conditions, and make research more relevant to problems in practice. The course covers a wide variety of occupational sectors and types of OHS problems. Participants with different disciplinary and professional backgrounds will be given the opportunity to share their experiences in an interactive way. The course endeavors to integrate a mixture of researchers and professionals.
