Strategies for improving knowledge exchange among scientists and decision-makers

The science-based management of natural resources requires knowledge exchange between scientists and environmental decision-makers, however, this exchange remains a significant challenge. New research by CMS Research Fellow Dr Chris Cvitanovic  identifies the barriers inhibiting knowledge exchange among marine scientists and decisions-makers, such as the inaccessibility of science to decision-makers as well as institutional barriers that limit the extent to which scientists and decision-makers can prioritise knowledge exchange activities. This research also identifies four options for overcoming these barriers; knowledge co-production, embedding scientists within decision-making agencies, knowledge brokers and boundary organisations. Find the whole article here: http://www.researchtoaction.org/2015/11/four-strategies-for-improving-knowledge-exchange-among-scientists-and-decision-makers/
