Knowledge translation (KT) is the dynamic and iterative process of synthesis, dissemination, exchange, and the ethically-sound application of knowledge. Within our area of research, KT serves to improve the health of the population, provide more effective health services and products, and strengthen the healthcare system.
The Complexity Science Lab hosts and participates in a variety of knowledge translation activities to promote cross disciplinary collaboration. For information about recent conferences or events, please click the links below.
