Article from Bryony Dutta | Knowledge Exchange Framework Coordinator
Kent’s Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Team will be touring the University’s Divisions with a deep dive webinar into the What, Why and When of the Knowledge Exchange Framework and Kent’s inaugural results.
The Knowledge Exchange Framework (now the third pillar of University assessment alongside the REF and the TEF) produced strong results for Kent, but what do these results mean, both now and in the future, and where do they place us nationally?
Carole Barron, Director of Knowledge Exchange and Innovation, and the Knowledge Exchange Co-ordinator, Bryony Dutta, will be answering these key questions for your Division, with an introduction to the Knowledge Exchange Framework and an in depth analysis of the results. There will also be the opportunity to pose your questions in a dedicated Q&A.
