In 2019, the University of Ottawa designed a knowledge mobilization needs assessment survey to understand the extent to which its researchers engage in knowledge mobilization, the barriers that limit their knowledge mobilization efforts and how the University could better support them. The goal was to use the results of the survey to adapt existing services and to develop new strategies to better support knowledge mobilization within institutions.

This toolkit will allow other organizations and academic institutions to undertake a knowledge mobilization needs assessment survey and to use the results of the survey to inform decisions and improvements in the organization’s knowledge mobilization support services. It contains guidelines, the survey questions and templates to adapt and use.

The toolkit is now available for free download at eValorix.
