The establishment of these winning conditions promotes the stakeholders’ solid involvement right from the start of the project creation process and throughout the project.

Prior aspects for ensuring knowledge translation

  • Identifying the relevant stakeholders/end-users for carrying out the research project 
  • Organizing the network of stakeholders in relation to OHS priority problems and issues and the needs of the target clienteles
  • Creating a context favourable to exchange, dissemination and use of the results

The research and knowledge translation cycle is structured around the development and maintenance of networks (researchers and stakeholders/end-users). These networks are organized in relation to priority OHS problems and issues and the needs of the target clienteles. In the dynamics of the cycle, each of the steps is carried out interactively with the partners involved. Consequently, when the needs are expressed and a research project is created, the researchers and partners interact in order to ensure that the goal of the research corresponds to the needs and responds to the realities of the potential users. This anchoring right from the start of a project also allows the creation of a context favourable to the appropriation and use of the research results by the different end-users.
