The Knowledge Exchange Concordat Evaluation Process (in England)

23 Jul 2020, 14:00 - 15:30

The second webinar in the knowledge exchange concordat series will be taking place on Thursday 23rd July at 14:00 - 15:30. This event will be a consultative session on the proposed KE concordat evaluation process in England.

The evaluation process aims to support, enable and inspire institutions to develop and embed strong knowledge exchange processes. The Evaluation Panel Chair, Dr Phil Clare, will outline the suggested next steps for the evaluation process including timescales, expectations for institutions, and the signing up process.

We will be looking to understand the most suitable evaluation process for the sector and there will be an opportunity to explore the recruitment and membership criteria for the Evaluation Panel.

Please register here.

You are invited to send any prior questions to keconcordat@universitiesuk.ac.uk ahead of the event and we will attempt to address them during the session. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions during the event.
