Abstract:Research funding agencies often expect that grant applications include a knowledge translation (KT) plan but many applicants and reviewers are without any clear idea of how to develop or assess such a plan. This paper arises from the development of a guide to support the KT component of the research grant application process. The authors reflect on some of the controversial issues related to KT definitions and scope that they struggled with as they developed the guide. Recommendations regarding implementation include training for reviewers and applicants as well as building broad infrastructure supports. The paper will be of interest to both practitioners and funders of research.
