Cathy Howe (2014) A cat, an elf-lord and a spaceman walked into a room… the first UK Knowledge Mobilisation Forum had begun” Sources & Resources section of Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice 10(2)  May 2014  283-288


This paper reports on the first UK Knowledge Mobilisation Forum, held in mixed reality on 3-4 February 2014.  This forum brought together 70 delegates from 15 sectors under the theme of ‘making connections matter’.  Highly participatory and academically credible, the forum combined a form of ‘open space’ participation with presentations from respected speakers on topics as diverse as design, fiction writing and community-university co-production.   The forum has been described as ‘a hallmark event’.   It was rated as excellent or good by 85% attendees and there is demand for it to become an annual event.  It will be held in Edinburgh in 2015.
