DRUSSA Universities write about Research Uptake: A Collection

One of the main assumptions behind the platform has been that DRUSSA universities have the will and resources to support RU dissemination mechanisms for knowledge and skills utilisation, and this has definitely been the case! Over the five years of the Programme every university has contributed to and shared the discussions about Research Uptake, both through writing about specific research projects and how the research was communicated with key stakeholders, and/or about how their University has been entrenching a culture of Research Uptake and institutionalising Research Uptake processes and mechanisms.

To honour the dedication and hard work of the DRUSSA Leaders and Champions, as well as the Research Communicators at DRUSSA Universities we have collected a selection of blogs that have been written over the course of the Programme, into one document. This Collection provides a view of DRUSSA Universities Research Uptake activities, reflects the diversity of Research Uptake activities and also the depth of Research Uptake capacity at DRUSSA Universities.

You can read the full blog and view the collection.
