These cover many areas of knowledge translation. Some examples include translation tools, research impact measurement, and translation planning. We can also provide bespoke solutions to fit your needs.

Consulting Activities

Build your organisational capacity for research impact

We provide training and strategy sessions to identify the best way to prepare your organisation for impact assessment.

  • Do your staff have the key skills and the necessary resources to ensure the best impact pathways are being developed and followed.
  • Are you an impact literate organisation?
  • Would you like to understand how others are operating in the engagement and impact space to see if there are strategies you can learn from?


Celebrate your achievements and explore opportunities for more

Let us review and identify translation/implementation activity already achieved and further work required

  • Work with organisation staff and research partners to review previous and current project translation plans/opportunities to determine what has been achieved so far.
  • Review outcomes from any evaluations and assessments of research implementation and impact activities.
  • Assist in the identification of key decision-maker audiences and the ideal message champions.

Be understood and appreciated by a broader non-academic audience

We can develop high-quality plain language summaries for existing research projects

  • We recommend and use a specific format that has been researched and developed by Research Impact-Réseau Impact Recherche (RIR), a Canadian network of 11 universities.
  • Two-page maximum, high-quality summary, that covers what the research was about, how the research was undertaken, what the research found, how you can use the research, and a highlight section outlining what the reader needs to know.
  • The format is based on advice and recommendations from research users and policymakers and has proven an effective tool for communicating research to a broad audience.
  • This format allows for consistency in your branding and messaging, and provides a simple, yet effective, process for researchers to follow in the future.


We will support your editorial and content support 

  • Work with staff, researchers, and partners, to collate and write content for proposals, publications, websites and so on.
