Fuse to host international Knowledge Exchange conference in 2020

Fuse is delighted to announce that the International Conference on Knowledge Exchange in Public Health will make a welcome return to North East England next year.

We have partnered with the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research in Canada, Cornell University in the USA, and Tilburg and Erasmus Universities in the Netherlands, to deliver what we hope will be an even bigger and better conference on all things knowledge exchange. 

22-23 September 2020

Fifth Fuse International Conference on Knowledge Exchange in Public Health
"Learning from Setbacks and Successes"
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

The daring topic for the conference is "Learning from setbacks and successes"While the evidence base on successful practices in knowledge exchange is growing rapidly, much less attention has been given to documenting setbacks when academics, practitioners and policy makers collaborate (or not!) to develop, exchange or use different types of evidence. We believe that learning from these setbacks is just as important, if not more crucial, than celebrating successes.

The conference aims to create a safe space in which academics, practitioners and policy makers can reflect together on the potential threats to successful knowledge exchange, in order to develop important lessons on how knowledge exchange practices and research can be improved, turning setbacks into successes.

We are keen to make the conference as interactive and creative as possible, so expect some new formats this year for your contributions.

A call for papers will be launched early next year and more information about the conference will be posted shortly.
