Knowledge Exchange Framework

Knowledge Exchange Concordat

The University's response to the Knowledge Exchange Concordat consultation is being prepared, after a call for contributions from colleagues last month. 

The concordat proposes eight high-level principles underlying knowledge exchange (KE) activities, and sets out the aims and enablers to help universities make informed decisions and develop their own informed strategies around KE. The document also contains the implementation plan following the consultation period and a list of the working group members.

The concordat aims to:

  • help universities and their staff and students enhance clarity of mission
  • support their development
  • give partners an accurate representation of the approaches and strengths of individual universities
  • provide clear indicators of their approaches to developing and improving performance
  • give governing bodies and government broad confidence in the activity that is taking place in universities
