Description

This is the first in-depth study to explore how knowledge brokerage has the potential to help manage the challenge of sustainable development across political and scientific systems. The authors analyse the concepts, experiences and recommendations of 11 EU-funded projects carried out over the last five years, to provide a clear set of practical tools for practitioners and policy-makers. They offer a broad variety of recommendations for replication in practice and interesting insights into hands-on experiences of outstanding research consortia from all over Europe. Knowledge Brokerage for Sustainable Development presents a selection of innovative and practical tools to enhance the connectivity of research and policy-making on sustainable development issues. In doing so, this book will be an essential publication in research and policy-making. It supports networking among the developers and users of knowledge brokerage systems and will make their experience better known to the different communities involved. With a Foreword by Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, European Commission; and a Preface by Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger, Rector of Vienna University of Economics and Business.
